This category encompasses restaurants that double as bars, deriving as much or profit from liquor and beer sales as from food. Patrons go to drink, eat or in most cases, both. And, in Buenos Aires, some of the city’s best restaurants happen to fall into this category. Many serve gourmet-quality food. Others have great specialty foods such as hamburgers or pizza, but do them better than most restaurants specializing in that type of food. Of course, if you’re looking for a subdued or romantic dining experience, this group is not your best choice. But if you’re looking for a high-energy restaurant where you can enjoy artisanal beer or high-quality cocktails in addition to exceptionally good food, these restaurants will do the trick.
