We were at El Baqueano for dinner yesterday.It was absolutely amazing. The selection of dishes and wine pairings was almost entirely perfect. The llama tartar is insanely delicious. The service is incredible, too. I cannot recommend it enough and I cannot wait to go back.

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
