(Starter at Hernan Gipponi Restaurant)
Hernán Gipponi: Ranked number 1 on Trip Advisor, this newcomer to the Palermo scene offers distinguished auteur cuisine with Spanish influences in the ground floor of our hotel. The renowned chef displays his culinary expertise, acquired at michelin starred restaurants such as the Guggenheim Bilbao and Quique Dacosta’s El Poblet in Denia, infusing each carefully prepared dish with subtle touches that make a big difference. We recommend you try the 7-step tasting menu with some of the remarkable wines selected by the president of the Argentine Sommelier Association, Andres Rosberg, and sommelier Martin Bruno. Soler 5862, Palermo. 3220-6820.
Paraje Arévalo: Although it might seem like another typical Palermo bistro, Estefanía Di Benedetto and Matías Kyrizis restaurant stands out as one of the best of its kind. Set in a simple antique atmosphere, this small gem acquires its sparkle from its refined dishes which feature grass fed meat, organic vegetables and spectacular home baked breads and patisserie. Two alternatives are offered for dinner; a 6 step tasting menu, and another of 8, both unequaled. During the day they serve breakfast, 5 o clock tea, and a lunch menu. Arévalo 1502, Palermo. 4775-7759
Las Pizarras: A unique concept is behind the ever-changing dishes determined by what Chef Rodrigo Castillo picks daily from the market. The resulting menu is displayed in the evening on chalk boards (pizarras) promising a singular dinning experience imbued with flavors, freshness and overall quality. What might you find on Las Pizarras chalkboards? Pate, quail, duck, beef, homemade raviolis, and fish amongst other delicacies. Thames 2296, Palermo. 4775-0625
Casa Mun: The goal of Chef Mun in this intimate closed-door restaurant is to create a sense of community amongst the food lovers sitting at his grand table. His own passion for cuisine began at a young age and was inherited from his mother and later developed into a full time activity after studying under the likes of celebrity Chef Makota Okuwa amongst others. The dining experience he shares with his visitors includes Japanese, Korean, Chinese and California cuisines and prove to be good for both the palate and the spirit. 15-3356-0092.
Don Julio: Meat eating whilst you’re visiting Buenos Aires is probably on your agenda and there is no place like a traditional parrilla to do it. Don Julio, is just that, a relaxed homey environment, good wine but most of all a great place to satiate your inner carnivore. Guatemala 4691, Palermo. 4831-9564.
