Cabernet twice was the best food experience I have after ten days in Argentina. I am saying twice because one Saturday walking under the sun the streets of Palermo Viejo, was noon when we got to Cortazar square and decided to follow a recommendation to try this restaurant.
Let me give you a brief description of the setting for our first visit. As many in the neighborhood, this old house has the patio facing the corner. A design that the owners with respect for the place decided to keep with the original structure and an old tree that is just right to filter enough sunlight to have lunch with a romantic setting.
The food was delicious we have a local fish that was prepared just right and argula ravioli with herbs. Looking for a white wine, we accepted the recommendation of the waiters for a Torrentes from Salta, Province [I apologize not to remember the name] but was priceless.
The second time, I went for business with some foxes wishing to have the same luck. Hoping the night atmosphere will be as good. This time we sat inside and the décor was nice, dark rouge color on the walls above a checkerboard floor, surrounded by windows, a bar on the side covered with bottles, and old long play covers that reminds you something from your old good days. The music background was good and with a glass of red this time, I enjoyed a lomo cook to perfection, and have for desert a crème brulee [I rather called Crema Catalana because my love to Barcelona], that was delicious. I’ll stop here not to look bias, and because no more words are needed.
This restaurant should shine as brightly as any other. It was superb!!!
