Awesome.

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.

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

Loved it, food, ambiance, service. What else? Did not expect anything else from Henry and Dan, two real pros. Thanks.

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

Dan and Henry are very welcoming hosts and have a beautiful home. I really enjoyed all of the courses served that evening, and the wine pairings were great. A standout was the mushroom soup, but everything was fantastic. Would recommend!

Casa SaltShaker was our first closed door restaurant experience, and Dan and Henry set the bar high. The food, wine pairings, setting, execution and experience lived up to the high expectations. If you are a foodie (or even if you aren't) and have a bit of a sense of adventure (or not), Casa SaltShaker should be at the top of... More

We dined with Dan & co at Casa Saltshaker after reading about the place online and their wonderful reviews. You cannot pass this place up. We had a wonderful time here and they are really doing some different and cool things. For one, it’s communal dining. So if you don’t want communal dining and you don’t want to share your... More

Thanks for your great writeup, glad you enjoyed food, wine and ambiance. If I may suggest a different interpretation - my popping in and out of the kitchen, which is right next to the dining room, isn't intended to pressure you to hurry up, it's simply first off, to be able to keep up a bit on the social conversation...

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.
