This was my first closed door dinner but definitely won't be my last given how great my inaugural experience was! As a solo traveler I welcomed the opportunity to enjoy a great meal amongst company. I was fortunate that the other guests that night were all really friendly, so it was fun to get to know them as we sampled... More

When I booked there, the place was ranked #16 of all Buenos Aires' restaurants. As soon as I stepped in the house, I understood why. The place is gorgeous, Dan and Henry and very welcoming and everything was top noth, from the cocktail to start things up to the dessert.

While in BA, i surprised my girlfriend with a puerta cerrada, being the food lover she is. Of course, it's kind of crazy to make a reservation for dinner at someone's house you've never met. However, this experience was the best...and not to mention Dan's artistic displays of food were beyond great. We were greeted with a cocktail and 4... More

Dan and Henry were great hosts at this closed door restaurant venue. It was a new experience for me and my husband. The food was very good and the company was great. Had dinner with people from England, Australia, California. Unique experience.

Dan was a great host and knows his food and wine. He explained every course and wine pairing perfectly and the choices were amazing. He is full of detail about the hsitory and happenings in Buenos Aires and also Argentina. All the food he served was top quality and fresh from the markets he frequents. The atmosphere lent to great... More

This was better than what I had expected. It was like coming over to a friend's intimate dinner party in his home, only you don't know who's invited. There was a good mix in our group (unintentional really): 6 nationalities not including Dan and Henry, 3 languages spoken, and a range of young ones to young once. The hosts were... More

We took a private cooking class with Dan at Casa SaltShaker. The class was detailed and informative and we cooked great food. Additionally Dan provided us all sorts of information about Buenos Aires that he's acquired during his 10 year stay. His favorite parilla, where to see real tango, how they come up with the top 50 restaurants in the... More

Puerto cerradas are huge in Buenos Aires so I was really excited for this night. I'd researched and found great reviews about Casa Saltshaker. Dan, the chef who runs it, used to work in restaurants in New York, then moved to BA on a whim 10 years ago and never looked back. There were 9 of us at the dinner,... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
