Blue Jar Review
This restaurant, although only a block from the Palacio de La Moneda, is an oasis of quiet on a small pedestrian street, and its food—simple but creative dishes using the best and freshest Chilean ingredients—appeals to locals and visitors alike, whether it's a sandwich, a salad and a bowl of soup, a full lunch, or a hearty breakfast. Its hallmark hamburgers are made from three different cuts of beef—one for flavor, one for texture, the other for color—with a little bacon fat added to keep them moist, and its wine list offers some of Chile's most interesting labels at very reasonable prices. Reservations are advisable for lunch, particularly for an outside table. It serves a full dinner on Thursdays but otherwise closes at 9 pm and has an abbreviated menu in the evenings, so arrive early for evening drinks, sandwiches, and snacks.
