They are the ones which are part of ranking # 50best that chooses the best in Latin America. Where to eat in Buenos Aires.
Led by Germán Martitegui, one of the popes of vernacular cuisine and jury of the program Masterchef Argentina, Tegui is the only Argentinean restaurant that integrates the top 10 of the best in Latin America. It opened in 2009 and is located in Palermo; behind a facade with graffiti’s that does not advance any of the magic that happens inside in terms of atmosphere, service and food. Tegui is the best exponent of contemporary Argentina cuisine: inventive, appealing to all the senses and underpinned by a good product. Partridge with humita, yellow pepper and figs, or lamb cooked 24 hours with thyme yogurt are some of the dishes with which the guest may encounter. First line wines cured by the great sommelier Martin Bruno. It worth a visit.

If you want an ambitious grill where the meat is serious, you must go to Don Julio. Therefore, it is always full and qualifies as a gastronomic must in the city. In its bustling lounge with fires in sight and full of bottles of wine signed by customers there are dialects from all over the world. The grill, which was extended repeatedly over the past 15 years, is located in a late 1800s building that was formerly a tenement. All meat sold there-more than 700 loins per week! is pasture meat and is tender and delicious. Try it and order kidney, a steak or beef rib back. Madness!

Gonzalo Aramburu is a chef who likes to surprise. He first surprised by opening his first restaurant in the district of Constitución, a Buenos Aires neighborhood quite sordid and dark at night. Then he surprised with an extensive and ambitious tasting menu with molecular trim and creativity. It took years before the public understood his proposal, but eventually brought its reward. Today Aramburu is one of the best local restaurants and last year added a bistro cuisine to reach a wider public version. The current menu consists of 12 steps among which you can find oysters with cucumber, fennel and wakame algae from Tierra del Fuego, and smoked steak with sunroot and salsify or ice cream, and ribbons of beet with Thai iced. Just a sample of a full menu, as could not be otherwise, of surprises.

When chef Leo Lanussol and pastry chef Augusto Mayer opened Proper in 2016, it was an instant success. Carnivores take a break from meat-heavy Buenos Aires steakhouses and enter into a world of vegetable-forward seasonal small plate dining.
For many years, the young duo worked under renowned chef and TV personality Narda Lepes. This is their first solo venture.
Proper takes pride in its sourdough bread, an elaborate process lasting three days. It is recommended to be ordered alongside homemade butter and Atlantic anchovies from Mar del Plata. The 30-second cooked calamari with broccoli and aioli is another house favourite. Make sure to save room for dessert, especially the dulce de leche flan with vanilla bean whipped cream, which many say is the best flan rendition in Buenos Aires.
Almost every dish is cooked inside a handmade wood-fired oven, visible to diners in the open kitchen.
Proper doesn’t take reservations, so arriving early (or late) is key.

Javier Ickowicz and Tomas Kalika are business partners and friends. As a result of this friendship and the culinary heritage in common, they have created the first Jewish avant-garde restaurant, "Mishiguene: Immigrants cuisine” is the name they chose for their restaurant. Roughly translated from Yiddish (a language that resist literal translation), the term Mishiguene affectionately refers to a person who is loveably crazy: a good description of their whole staff! Inmigrant cuisine reflects the many threads that are woven into the tapestry of jewish culinary culture.
From Russian-Polish borscht to spit roasted-Moroccan lamb, to crispy Roman artichoke a la giudia from Rome, jachnun of Yemen, the story of their cuisine is one of constant transformation alongside a loving embrace of ancient tradition.
