Duhau Restaurant and Vinoteca at Palacio Duhau | Buenos Aires, Argentina | Romantic and chic would be the perfect two words to define it, but what can I say then about the excellent service, cuisines and wines. Another superb diner in Buenos Aires, this time by the signature international service of Park Hyatt Group, and the stunning setting of the central gardens at Palacio Duhau Buenos Aires.
The main restaurant of the Palace, Duhau Restaurante offers sofisticated Argentinean cuisine with and emphasis on typical cuts of Argentinean meat from the best breeds, including Wagyu, Black Angus and Aberdeen Angus. A very intimate, romantic and sophisticated atmosphere, mind the weather and dine over candlelights at the central garden with ample seating on the terrace. My choices for the night, very brilliantly matched by local Argentinean wines by the glass. Appetizer: Wooden broiled goat cheese provoleta served with chimichurri sauce, honey, sprouts and preserved lemon (USD 19) married with Luigi Bosca Gala 3 a mix of Viognier-Riesling-Chardonnay. Main Course: Grilled Patagonian salmon trout (USD 29) married with a Barda Pinot Noir. Excellent service and knowledgeable sommelier and waiters, eager to share information about the Argentinean wines and gastronomy. Low lights, yes indeed, but not to worry no need to see much, flavors and scents will express by themselves in full.
Desert, well not this time…. I am watching my figure ha ha ha, but I replaced it by my new absolute local obsession, the Smoked Darjeeling Tea they serve at the Palacio Duhau. If Africa was all about Rooibos Tea, and Asia about Ginger and Masala Tea, now Argentina is all MAD about this new blend. Duhau Restaurant worth trying it and believe me, once dinner is over you will want to linger around and enjoy the peace and coziness of the gardens lit by candles with stunning views of the Duhau Palace. Good Night. Carlos Melia Luxury Travel Curator – www.carlosmelia.com
