Buenos Aires Restaurants

When in Buenos Aires, it's best to throw carb- and calorie-caution to the wind and give into the porteño way: steak, steak, and more steak, washed down with - what else? - tasty red wine from the various vineyard regions of the huge country. Parrillas, the local term for the popular, dime-a-dozen grill restaurants, can be found on literally every block in the city, and range from upscale, romantic settings with finer cuts of beef, finer wines and national favorites such as Patagonian lamb, to dives where diners can fill their bellies like the locals with empanadas, steaks, and Italian-style pizza, topping off the satisfying grub with shockingly cheap bills at the end of the meal. Vegetarians need not fret, however; there is a greener side to cuisine in Buenos Aires, though you'll have to know where to look to find it. Trendy Palermo packs the highest proportion of international dining options and ethnic food, with stylish eateries with stimulating menus on every corner. Those looking for ethnic options should try out the numerous Peruvian, Bolivian, Japanese, Middle Eastern, Indian, Kosher, and Asian offerings, clustered mainly in the scores of small ethnic enclaves around Buenos Aires. Some of the most interesting cuisine and dining atmospheres can be found in the growing 'puerta cerrada' ('closed-door') scene, in which small numbers of guests are invited to tuck into gourmet cuisine in the intimacy of the chef's own home.
