Establishments information
Description: 

Arevalito is a little restaurant in Palermo, run by Carmen Paz, Uki Castro Giovanni and Luciano Spinelli. It is a small, simple venue, with an open kitchen, checkered floor and outdoor seating.

The menu is vegetarian and delicious, with hearty and healthy dishes. The ingredients are fresh, seasonal and top quality. The menu, which consists of five main courses, changes on a daily basis depending on what the market has to offer and the inspiration of the chef. There is always a quiche, a sandwich and three main dishes (which includes a salad during summer and in winter, more soups and casseroles).

The customers are regulars and in Arevalito one can sense the genuine bohemian atmosphere that was once characteristic of Palermo. There are just a few desserts, but they are excellent. One of the owners, Carmen Paz, often quotes Victor Hugo: “Dessert is to a meal, what a crown is to a queen”.

In Arevalito, you can also enjoy breakfast or a cup of tea. Open Monday to Saturday, from 9 am to midnight. Payment by credit card is not available.

La Anita Restaurant

Localities: 
San Isidro
Establishments type: 
Restaurants
Region: 
Buenos Aires
Establishments information
Description: 

This is a spacious and casual facility—enveloped by the fresh air from the San Isidro riverside—that offers several rooms and areas, including the terrace that looks out to the street and the garden in the back.

The kitchen is run by Jose Dell'Acqua (aka Satan) and the menu was created so that everyone could find an option that suits them. The ingredients are fresh and top-quality. The dishes are prepared on the spot, as opposed to the fast-food philosophy, which is why it is better if you come relaxed and with time to spare —just as the art of fine dining mandates.

Just like bistros, the daily specials are advertised on the street and the dishes on the menu change regularly. There are fabulous dishes, such as prawn carpaccio, as well as quesadillas, woks, pastas and the catch of the day, prepared in Mediterranean style and La Anita style.

The wine menu is good and offers some unconventional choices. Even though it is usually busy, you are likely to find a table. La Anita, inspired by its counterpart in Ibiza, is an original and interesting option from the Buenos Aires gastronomic scene.  The formula works because the concept is versatile, open and friendly, and has a good price-quality ratio.

Description: 

La Hacienda is located in the Molinos town on the shores of Calchaquí River, at the side of National Route 40 and right in the center of the Calchaquíes valleys.
