Local Bites: the best places to eat and drink in Buenos Aires

Lunch at MN Santa Inés in La Paternal.

(Lonely Planet) While the Argentinian capital is still revered for its impressive number of top-notch parrillas (steakhouses), the food and drink scene in Buenos Aires has boomed over the past decade.

From contemporary bodegas and trendy bistros to new wine joints and award-winning cocktail bars, Buenos Aires is becoming the star of the gastronomy world. Michelin published its first Argentina restaurant guide in November, the same month 14 establishments ranked on Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants 2023. 

It’s time to don an elasticated waistband and make some reservations.


Caffeine kickstarts my day and I love to saunter over to La Noire, a café five blocks from home on the cusp of Villa Crespo and Chacarita. This French-owned coffee shop captured my heart during the pandemic thanks to its one tiny bench on the sidewalk, two-for-one cappuccinos and delightfully friendly service.
