This was our first meal in Buenos Aires – it was delicious and set an incredible standard for the rest of our meals in Buenos Aires. The restaurant is open Sunday night – but reservations are needed – all the time. This is one of those “closed door” restaurants – you need to make the reservation in advance – no walk-ins. But once inside, it was definitely not closed door – the atmosphere was warm and friendly and the food delicious.
The four of us – my wife and our two children, one of whom is a real foodie – totally enjoyed ourselves. The service was wonderful; three times during our dinner the chef - Daniel Hansen – came into the dining room to talk with guests and ask for suggestions and comments.
We started with two different carpaccios – Chilean octopus and the tenderloin parmigiana. Our waitress recommended that we try the Argentinian Torrontes – a delicious white wine – that none of us had ever had before. It was a good choice, the wine was delicious and is now one of our favorites (and this is from someone who prefers red wine).
Our entrees were the ossobuco risotto, baked lamb wrapped in spinach and prosciutto (with a Malbec reduction), the penne rigate with gorgonzola (and apricot, black olives and sundried tomatoes), and the chicken with artichokes. We had more than enough food for the four of us, which we all shared. The ossobuco is “to die for.” It is the knuckle of the cow leg – slow cooked for days – and then mixed with the delicious risotto.
The desert menu looked delicious – but we passed on it. Our meal was capped off with complimentary glasses of limoncello.
The cost for the four of us – a total of about USD $60.00. La Pecora Nera - The Black Sheep – was a wonderful dining experience – just two blocks off Las Heras in Recoleta.
