Hi all - my wife and I are spending a week in a lovely apartment in Palermo Buenos Aires on Oro 2835 between Avenue Cervino and Demaria . We would like to experience great food, wine, and restaurants. We tend to like really fresh, locally sourced bistro style food, I'd like to taste the best of Buenos Aires cuisine and explore the local markets. I'd like to taste and drink as many good Malbecs as possible - preferable good wine that I won't find exported to home. We have no problem spending $ in restaurants, nor do we have a problem eating street vendor food. Tend to avoid "scene" type restaurants as my focus is on great food not necessarily what is that latest hot spot - but if the hot spot has great food and wine then that is cool too. I'd appreciate recommendations and would appreciate recommendations on grocery stores and wine shops nearby. I would also love to know about markets - farmer's markets etc. if those happen at all in the city. Lastly, as Americans, I'm curious as to whether there are any restauransts serving a traditional Thanksgiving dinner and any bars/restaurants etc where US expatriates hang out. We're always travelling with the intent of finding places to retire to in our later years and BA strikes me as a place that might be a viable option. Thanks very much.
