Closed-Door Restaurants in Buenos Aires

Last Friday my BBC Travel article International cuisine in Buenos Aires’ puerta cerradas came out. For the piece, I had the can-you-even-call-this-work task of attending each of the four closed-door restaurants I featured and chatting with some of the best chefs in town. I excerpted the introduction below, and soon I will be posting photographs from each of my meals (a course will not be missed!) at the four closed-door spots.

Photos I took at Casa Mun, used to accompany the BBC article

BBC Travel story:

Casa Mun’s two tables were each set for eight people, a pair of sturdy, bamboo chopsticks resting diagonally across the square porcelain plates imported from China. Soft light from the candle centrepieces played off the deep red walls of the Buenos Aires loft, and dinner guests filled the communal dining tables, chatting with new acquaintances. As they sipped the last of their welcome reception champagne, a chef emerged from the adjacent kitchen, bowls of steaming Chinese wonton soup in his hands. Aromas of the impending five-course Asian meal had been wafting through the room since the guests arrived.
