Kansas Grill and Bar. Please, try their ribs! Acassuso, Buenos Aires. A lot like Houston's or R and D Cafe in the states.
La Rambla Cafe, Buenos Aires Three words: Best. Tenderloin. Sandwiches. Located at the corner of Ayacucho and Posadas, La Rambla is a neighborhood favorite in the Recoleta district, attracting both locals and tourists alike. The restaurant has a settled feel to it, with heavy wood panelling and bronze chandeliers inside. The waiters dressed in crisp white shirts and black bow-ties add to the old time era and mementos of days past. More here: www.rollinglobe.c......
In front of Lezama Square, the colorful murals on the façade, with local "filetes" (a typical kind of local painting), decorate the entry to this tango bar where the movies "La Lección de tango" and "Assassination Tango" were filmed. This place doesn't offer shows "for export," but concerts by famous artists and young musicians that are at the forefront of tango music in the city. It is also primarily a tango dance school. And, in addition to all of the above, there are free open milongas on Sundays. Highly recommendable. Who has visted this place? Shakira, Guidon Kremer, Robert Duvall, among others.
The pattern was designed sometime during 1943-1945 and received its name from Rio de la Plata, the great river estuary outside of Buenos Aires.
Buenos Aires. Argentina.
Buenos Aires in the morning
This is the bookstore El Ateneo in Buenos Aires and believe it or not this was actually a real theatre and then a movie theatre before it became a bookshop. We at World Book Night especially like the mix of modern design with original building features, as it illustrates just how important all books are, old and new.
After studying abroad in Buenos Aires, I'm always on the lookout for Argentine prints, which are pretty difficult to find. It's not like Paris where you can find jillions of photos of the Eiffel Tower. But, looky here, I found a neat, vintage-esque map of Argentina and Chile. I may just have to purchase this bad boy.
