2013 was a great year for the local culinary industry! The second edition of the Masticar Food Fair, which aims at promoting local cuisine and gourmet lifestyle was a huge success and 15 Argentine restaurants (including HG) were picked as part of the top 50 restaurants of the world by Restaurant Magazine!
At Hernán Gipponi the new One Table event that takes place on Mondays and is all about sharing a unique and very tasty dining experience with other food enthusiasts in one big table proved to be a huge success and part of a gastronomic tendency that is becoming more and more popular in the city.
Additionally, there were some great new restaurants and bars that opened and are well worth checking out: the gorgeous Floreria Atlántico, one of the city’s best which is great for food, drinks and buying flowers, Verne which is local celebrity bartender Fede Cuco’s booze baby, and Astor which is becoming increasingly popular due to its perfected simplicity. A full list of new additions to the city scene is available at the Pick Up the Fork blog that is put together by our friend Allie, who also started offering food tours this year.
Second servings coming up in 2014!
