The Colegiales area is growing as an auteur cuisine hotspot and Astor is its newest star. The laid back atmosphere of this down to earth bistró is the opposite of pretentious and focuses on top quality in the wining and dining department. Everything is simple and perfectly prepared, from the warm and flavorful bread brought to the table in a basic brown bag, to the smooth and satisfying entree of classic corn but made risotto, to the typical Argie steak that stands to prove that the local meat is best, to the desserts with just the right amount of sugar and crunch. A good wine list, quirky cocktails and an open kitchen where Antonio Soriano, the amiable chef and owner can be seen cooking, complete this balanced gastronomic equation. Ciudad de la Paz 354, Colegiales. 4554-0802.
