I have read with gusto the reviews from 2008, and I am excited abbout trying a few of those places -- ecpecially Tio Lucho in Mercado Central.
I am looking for additional suggestions from you chowhounders because my group came to Santiago with less than cosmopolitan clothing. Because of work requirements, we are strictly jeans and polo shirts on this trip. So I ask -- where can we find good food without the need for dressing up?
We are staying in El Golf, and we are looking for lunch and dinner spots. Steak, salads, fish and local cuisine are on our agenda. WE do have access to cars so that is not a worry.
ALSO -- can anyone suggest a good place for Chilean wine tasting. I doubt our office would allow us to go further afield to do a winery tour, but maybe there is a wine shop here in Santiago that does good tastings?
