UPTOWN: Step into another world underground, where New York meets exciting Buenos Aires at Uptown, a new restaurant and bar by the creators of the Harrison speakeasy, designed by architect Paula Peirano. The subterranean setting is reached through its own subway opening, and is decorated with New York’s iconic off-white rectangular tiles and a real train car. The house mixologist is Luis Miranda, who hails from Doppelgänger, with menu overseen by Dante Liporace, who had previously worked as chef to the President of Argentina, Maurico Macri in the Casa Rosada. His cuisine at Uptown is inspired by New York’s most famous immigrant neighborhoods, Little Italy and Chinatown. (And Buenos Aires’ own Chinatown is only a few blocks away to explore before or after!
TANTA: The long-awaited opening of Tanta Buenos Aires comes in April. Tanta is the creation of Peruvian Chef Gastón Acurio, who helped make ceviche and other Peruvian dishes known throughout the world after opening Astrid & Gastón and La Mer with his wife, the German Astrid Gutsche. Their shared gastronomic passion began when they met as students at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. Built into the new Tower Bellini on Esmeralda and Paraguay Streets, the restaurant will be massive, filling over 8800 square feet with a 330 square feet bar where Piscos will reign. There will even be an interior jungle under skylights. The Peruvian creole cuisine will offer more than just ceviche, from salted beef, to empanadas, to garlic hen and cured lamb. Tanta is a global brand, with branches in Peru, the United States, Chile and Bolivia.
PRESIDENTE: Among the chicest new offerings is Presidente, in the exclusive Recoleta neighborhood, opened in March 2017 by one of Buenos Aires’ most renowned mixologists, Seba García. Formerly of the Harrison speakeasy, and an ambassador for Italian drinks brand Campari, Garcia wanted his own new place, where he said “foreigners who come can drink Buenos Aires in a cocktail.” The space is inside of a small hotel filled with wood, lamps with hanging crystals and books, the atmosphere pulling in locals and visitors alike. The drinks menu is a fusion of ingredients from all over the world, married with Argentina’s best ingredients. For example, one of the cocktails consists of cardamom and limoncello, mixed with yerba and honey from Balcarce in the province of Buenos Aires. The menu of sushi and other small plates is overseen by Santi Ferrer. (Here you are able to try the “Negroni del Sur” made with Gin macerated with Cedrón + Campari + Homemade Vermouth + spiced Malbec from Mendoza + Grapefruit skin for garnish.)
