BA Food Week is back and bigger than ever, this time with more than 40 restaurants onboard. Until September 14th, you’ll have the chance to dine out at some of the finest eateries in Buenos Aires at fabulously affordable prices; The 140 pesos lunch and 220 dinner special with three-course menus is a dream come true for all you foodies out there. We’ve rounded up our top 5 of Buenos Aires’ best restaurants, from a state-of-the-art fusion master in Palermo Hollywood to the wine lovers heaven in San Telmo.
1. Trattoria Olivetti
Best for: Shameless indulgence
One of the best Italian spots in town, with a scenic rooftop view overlooking Palermo Nuevo’s elegant tree lined streets. Come for lunch and prepare to swoon over the fresh linguine for a not-overcooked pasta sensation that’s rare to find in Buenos Aires. We would also like to beat the drum for their braised oxtail risotto with Caprino cheese and bacon. Here you’ll enjoy spot-on cooking (the chef knows his stuff) and ingredients taken right out of Napoli.
Best for: The fancy date
Think Japan meets Peru in a sleek setting, making this Lima-based chain a fantastic option for any date or groups of friends who wants to savor excellent service in the restaurant-dense Palermo Hollywood neighborhood. Normally, Osaka tends to be a bit pricey, but during Buenos Aires Food Week you can treat yourself and try out their mouth-watering menu without leaving with an empty wallet.
3. Astor Bistró
Best for: The extended lunch break
Explore nueva cocina Argentina in a relaxed and unpretentious ambience. French chef Antonio Soriano uses skillful culinary techniques, taking cues from his homeland and bringing Argentine gastronomy to an unexpected level. This Belgrano hot spot will certainly make you lengthen that already extended lunch break.
Best for: Cross-boarder taste buds
Another Peruvian-Japanese fusion champ, this famous José Castro Mendivil creation offers a magical sushi bar with fresh fish, making this one of Buenos Aires’ best restaurants. The chef seems to be on a constant mission to inspire the appetite of your cross-border taste buds. Also, don’t forget to pick the lusciously sweet Suspiro de limeña dessert for a true finish to a perfect Peruvian meal.
5. Aldo’s Vinoteca Restorán
Best for: Thirsty Thursdays
This eatery within a wine store, located in the Moereno Hotel, is in convenient walking distance from our luxury rentals in San Telmo. The simple yet exquisite menu includes specialties such as tenderloin milanesa and salmon confit, focusing on uncomplicated deliciousness. Remember that the wine is the star of the show here at Aldo’s; so let their talented sommeliers choose the perfect beverage to wash down your tasty meal.Argentina, Buenos Aires, Restaurants in Buenos Aires
