El Pobre Luis
Fútbol jerseys line the walls at El Pobre Luis, a bustling Chinatown parrilla. Locals pack the house to order salchicha parrilleras and Uruguayan pamplonas, either beef, chicken, or pork stuffed with cheese, ham, and roasted red peppers, rolled up, and cooked on the parrilla. Head to the bar for the best seat in the house, which overlooks head parrillero Beto Niz on the grill. Website

This isn’t your Bubbe’s Friday night shabbat dinner. The upscale Jewish eatery recreates Ashkenazi, Sephardic, Israeli, and Middle Eastern dishes using fresh ingredients and modern techniques in a way that both intrigues and invokes nostalgia. The bone-in pastrami will leave you utterly verklempt. Website


The setting is an old San Telmo house that opens to an inner patio, which in turn leads to various other rooms and spaces. There are mismatched wooden tables, chairs, and stools tucked away in every corner of the place. There’s nothing fancy about BierLife but the atmosphere is warm and friendly. Website

Gran Bar Danzon
This place opened back in 1998 and has consistently catered to a sophisticated looking crowd—think the professional crowd conducting business, 40-something jet setters, local couples on a first date, and tourists who found their way here thanks to the recommendations of the concierge at the Alvear Palace Hotel.
