Paraje Arevalo is one of our favorite Palermo restaurants and now chef-owners Estefanía Di Benedetto and Matías Kyrizis are bringing even more to the hip local scene. LOCAL Restaurant is their new restaurant that opened in 2012 and offers a more laid back version of their exemplary cooking.
The gem however is the next-door Casa Arévalo, a gastronomic home where monthly pop-up dinners take place and are prepared by some of the most renowned city chefs.
This initiative, called TC Gourmet (un tour de cocineros) is part of a new culinary movement led by chefs who seek to redefine the local gastronomic scene. Projects such as this one; GAJO, a deluxe team made of the city`s top chefs who combine their talents and local ingredients to deliver the best of fine dining at different venues around the city, and a group called A.C.E.L.G.A, which is comprised of renowned chefs and businessmen from the culinary world who organize different events, are part of this new wave of Argentine cuisine.
LOCAL is open from Tuesday to Sunday both for lunch and dinner. It is located at Arévalo 2063 in Palermo. Casa Arévalo offers pop-up events next door at Arévalo 2061. 4773-6119
