It is an eager and ambitious grill house, the meat quality is of another level in Don Julio. Therefore, the place is always full, and is among the gastronomic locations that you must visit in the city. In its bustling lounge, with the grill fires in sight and shelves full of bottles of wine signed by customers, you can hear accents from all over the world. The grill house, which was expanding over time in the last 15 years, is located in a late 18th century building that was once a tenement house. All the meat sold in the restaurant - more than 700 loins per week! - is from pastures, which creates tender and juicy cuts. Try it and ask for a hanger steak, a chorizo steak or a rib eye steak with tenderloin. It is a carnivorous delicacy!

Led by Germán Martitegui, which is one of the high-class influences of the local gastronomy and a jury of Masterchef Argentina, Tegui opened its doors in 2009 and is located in Palermo, behind a grafitted facade, which reveals nothing of the magic that happens behind its doors in terms of environment, service and food. This restaurant is the face of the best of contemporary Argentine cuisine: ingenious, attractive for all the senses and a good product as spearhead. Field partridge with humita, yellow chili and figs, or lamb cooked for 24 hours on thyme yogurt, are some of the dishes with which the diner can come across. Top class wines. Tegui is worth a visit.

This is the first Jewish avant-garde restaurant in Buenos Aires, which is born in the mind of two friends and partners, the businessman Javier Ickowicz and the chef Tomás Kalika. They create this project, thinking in the culinary inheritance they have in common, where they proposed to reinterpret the old Azkenazi, Sephardic, Arab and Middle Eastern recipes with the most modern cooking techniques. A classic is its pastrami with bone, but you can also possible find in its culinary repertoire the guefilte fish or the beetroot soup. The restaurant environment is warm, noisy and cheerful, and some nights there are live musicians playing klezmer songs. In Yiddish, Mishiguene means "deliciously and delightfully crazy".

Located in a corner of San Telmo, the chef from Mar del Plata, Fernando Rivarola, loves to brag about the native meats – such as yacare caiman, chinchilla, greater rhea, quail, hare and wild boar - and the regional cuisine, often obscured in Buenos Aires by the European-influenced cuisine. Wild boar carpaccio, crocodile brochette and greater rhea meat wrapped in bacon can appear on the seven-step tasting menu. A little over a year ago they renovated the lounge, to give it a more fresh and contemporary touch.

Creation of the chef Mariano Ramón, this small and austere restaurant in Palermo (just over 20 cutlery sets) that bet everything on taste and quality, and won. It is very likely that you could eat something uncomfortable or in a hurry - there is always people in line - but the food will never let you down. Ramón is a specialist working with vegetables, which gain prominence in his dishes. Another of his influences are the Asian street dishes such as pakoras, which are already a classic of the Grand Dabbang. He was also the first to impose the small dish, to share instead of the traditional entry, main and dessert sequence.

Gonzalo Aramburu is one of the best chefs in Argentina, but he prefers to stay out of the culinary sphere, keeping a low profile. In mid-April and after more than 10 years he moved his restaurant from Constitución, a peripheral and little gastronomic neighborhood, to the much more touristy Recoleta. Today the restaurant works at the end of a flirtatious passage with checkerboard floor. The menu changes regularly and it has several steps: some dishes that can be found are oysters with cucumber, fennel and wakame seaweed from Tierra del Fuego, smoked grilled meat with sunroot and salsify or ice cream, and beet slices with thai slush. This is just a taste of a menu full of surprises.

Since the chef Leo Lanussol and pastry chef Augusto Mayer opened Proper in 2016, it was an instant success. The carnivores could take a break from the grill houses of Buenos Aires and enter a world of small dishes with fresh seasonal vegetables. For many years, the young duo worked under the renowned chef and TV celebrity Narda Lepes. Proper is proud of its sourdough bread, an elaborate process that lasts three days. It is recommended to order it together with homemade lard and Atlantic anchovies from Mar del Plata. Plus, the 30-second cooked squid with broccoli and aioli are other favories dishes of the Restaurant. Another classic is its dulce de leche flan with whipped vanilla cream, which many points to as the best in Buenos Aires. Proper does not take reservations, so arriving early is the key.

Narda Lepes's restaurant achieved what others couldn’t: before completing a year after its inauguration was chosen as one the best in Latin America. The lounge deserves it. It is modern, bright and open all day, so it is possible to do any of the meals of the day in the restaurant, and they are all worth it. The chef works very intensely with the vegetables, with the textures and the flavors that contrast and explode in the mouth. Impossible to stay indifferent. These are some dishes you cannot miss: the bibimbap, a Korean dish, the onion, potato cream and meat juice.
