If there is one thing Palermo Hollywood is known for, it is its great selection of restaurants! See below where to go for auteur meals, a bit of spice, or a generous portion of meat.
Award winning gourmet dining
Recently, Restaurant Magazine chose the world’s fifty best restaurants, and it just so happens that three of them are located in the Palermo Hollywood area. If fine dining is your kind of thing, then you will definitely want to stop by for lunch, brunch, or an extended tasting menu at Hernán Gipponi Restaurant which is known for its fish main courses, creamy risottos and famous yoghurt and granita dessert. Tegui is another to offer delectable tasting menus with three appetizer options, three main courses and three desert options that change depending on chef Martín Martitegui´s latest bout of inspiration. Paraje Arevalo is a pretty corner restaurant that also offers delectable auteur dishes and 6 or 8 course tasting menus.
Exotic and foreign cuisine
The area is also abundant in options that feature exotic foreign cuisine: Green Bamboo for Vietnamese, Sudestada for Thai, Bangalore for curries in a relaxed pub like atmosphere, Bar du Marche (a French bistro with a secret closed door Japanese restaurant atop), Paru for Peruvian and Japanese fusion cuisine, and Boteco do Brazil for yummy Brazilian food. Whatever your taste or preference in spice, you’re bound to find it at one of these hot dining spots!
The Argie Staples: Pizza, pasta, and meat
And of course, no respectable Buenos Aires neighborhood can be without its carb and protein eateries and Palermo is of course no exception to the rule. For the best Italian style pasta in the area head to Da Donato Cucina Paradiso,and to Siammo nel Forno for pizza, Morelia does grilled pizza and for asado there is the Uruguayan La Celeste or the typically Argentine El Bonpland and La Dorita de enfrente.
