I was a little skeptical at first, given the many tour book mentions, the hipper-than-thou crowd, and the flashing strobe light. I shoudn´t have been. The food was wonderful, and the wines were excellent.
Especially good - the octopus and sole ceviche with avocado sorbet, with melon and celery sauce - paired beautifully with the semillon by the glass (Finca La Anita, 2004), and the pork with fava bean puree. My rib-eye had a sauce that ordinarily would have been too redolent of sweet spices for me, but it was fantastic with the oak in my bonarda (Fond de Cave, 2004 Riserva). App, entree, 3 glasses of wine per person, and a norteamericano tip came out to about $35 (American) pp.

Would love other recs - on the list right now are Restaurant Dora, Jangada, Bar Uriarte, Casa Cruz, and El Yugo. Would also appreciate recs for Iguazu and Salta. And if anyone can tell me whether or not the empanadas in Adrogue are really superior enough to warrant a special trip.
