With Christmas and New Year just around the corner, if you are planning to be in Buenos Aires for either of the important dates, now’s the time to make festive plans!
While lots of the city’s restaurants and bars will be taking a well-deserved break over Christmas and New Year, Fierro Hotel’s in-house restaurant UCO will be laying on a special festive menu for both Nochebuena (Christmas Eve) and New Year’s Eve.
If you’re new to Christmas celebrations in Argentina, it may come as a surprise that the main celebration takes place on the 24th and not the 25th. A family orientated affair, many people will opt to travel out of the city for both dates and spend time with relatives outside the city limits in the province and beyond.
Eating a huge meal at around midnight, presents are then torn open and celebrations then last right into the early hours of the morning. As you can imagine, December 25th is far more relaxed and usually involves eating leftovers and perhaps some sunbathing too.
The norm for New Year’s Eve is to have a big dinner with friends and family late at night (around 11 PM) followed by the popping of champagne at midnight. Friends will then get together and head out to party at around 3 AM often until late morning!
Offering one of the best alternatives to spending time with extended family and friends, here at UCO, we’ve come up with an exciting menu to enjoy among whoever you choose!
If you’d like to stop by for dinner on Christmas Eve or on New Year’s Eve our wine paired menu will include the following courses:
Salmon, beetroot, green leaves, sprouts
Burrata cheese, figs with an emulsion dressing
Patagonian lamb slow-cooked for 18 hours served with asparagus, and portobello mushrooms

If you’d like to celebrate the holidays or beginning of 2019 pop in for Christmas Lunch or New Year’s Day Lunch and enjoy this three-course menu:
Tiradito style white fish, avocado and maize
