Basa – Retiro – Buenos Aires

Sleek. Trendy. Upscale. Uptempo. Restaurant. Bar. Take your pick. Great food. Unique menu. A bit loud. If you’re looking for a traditional restaurant try one of many in La Recova four blocks away.

Florería Atlántico – Retiro – Buenos Aires

Florería Atlántico – Retiro – Buenos Aires

The hottest bar in Buenos Aires might just be the best restaurant as well. A limited menu with one steak, a few fish main course items, and a handful of tapas. But what they do, they do marvelously well. Not so good for a romantic or quiet dinner. But for great food at a reasonable price in a fun atmosphere it’s the best choice in Buenos Aires.

Shout – Centro – Buenos Aires

Shout – Centro – Buenos Aires

This place had a very similar vibe to what you get over at Floreria Atlantico, but with better prices and more room to move around. That’s a plus, especially if you’re claustrophobic.

Peugeot Lounge – Palermo Hollywood – Buenos Aires

Peugeot Lounge – Palermo Hollywood – Buenos Aires

Cleverly decorated with a French motif and late-model Peugeot sedan sitting in the entryway. This is more a bar than a restaurant. It has inexpensive drinks and a big menu of finger-foods. Check out the sliders. Enough for 2 or 3 and they taste pretty darn good. Great place to meet friends to drink and nibble.
