I have been to some on that list but boy would I like to be there now and trying some more!
I'm now speechless and starving!
Very good article, Punta. Now we know were we've been 'right on' and what we've missed - so far.
This is an excellent starter for visitors....first -time and otherwise.
WOW. What a weak moment.........I just came in from shoveling and de-icing the cars for the nth time this season. Why am I not in BA??????
Anyone who has Don Julio and El Cuartito on the top of their list is my kind of diner.
Thanks Punta. This is a great list for anyone.
Check this blog out: http://pickupthefork.com/ I really like the author’s style and she knows her stuff. She’s also funny and witty. The truth is Buenos Aires has come a long way in terms of cuisine and there are a lot of interesting offers nowadays.
Sigh..... where is the good old traditional editorial scrutiny...????? If those are the top 10 restaurants in Buenos Aires, Im Warren Buffettttttt................ what a load of Doodooooo (rolleyes)
Gaucho, I empathize with you. “Best” lists, especially ones written for major English-language newspapers serve only to remind me of restaurants I’ve been to or that I excitedly try for the first time and then find English being mainly spoken in them. Sometimes, publications of ‘best’ seem to be more about alerting English speakers to where they’re more likely to dine among people of their language or nationality.
I’m not sure how much quality control an editor who like the journalist doesn’t live in that country could possibly provide.
I tend to pay more attention to locals’ reviews of their own cuisine. When the cuisine is a foreign one to that country, I prefer reviews by people from the country of said cuisine.
I see markedly different opinions reading French-language reviews about restaurants where I’m living. The same goes for finding new ones in town that are excellent and not yet on visitors' itineraries. Thank goodness for 'google translate'.
The great thing about BA along with its chefs' innovative approaches to food and taste is the fact that places from cheap to expensive actually cook from scratch what they serve. I pray this is still the case and isn't changing.
Yes there are some great restaurants in Bs As, but why not in Mar del Plata? I was recently there for a week, and some of the most highly rated places on TA were no more than average for me, though I did eat some excellent seafood. Can anyone recommend somewhere special there? (But I suppose that the restaurants cater 99% for Argentineans, as very few tourists from Europe go there!) Much as I like steak, fish, pizza, and pasta, could not find anything oriental, anywhere. I have not sent this to the MDP forum, as it is not used so much.
