Da Carla – Santiago – Vitacura

This is not your typical Italian restaurant. It’s Italian cuisine to the nth degree in an elegant setting. A great experience, whether you choose to dine indoors or on the glassed-in terrace. Superb execution and service.

Multi-course tasting menu featuring foraged produce and herbs. They never brought the change when I paid the bill. Guzman’s little army of gnomes does an admirable job of taking tidbits they found on the forest floor and turning them into food. But I’d rather have had a burger and Mr. Jack for a fifth of the price.

Darn good burgers and fries. The decor is a bit sterile. Chrome with black and white tile like a subway station. There are dozens of locations throughout Santiago so there’s bound to be one close to you. Unless you’re wanting to drive to Bellavista or live there this is a pretty good choice for a burger if you have the greenbacks … cause these are pricey.

Tables upstairs. Cooks serving up burgers and hot dogs to customers sitting at the counter. Reminiscent of the classic American Diner. I’d heard the burger was something special. Not really. Barely average. Fries from a bag. At least they were hot.
