The Best Dining in Palermo: The Remington

This week, we're highlighting the best restaurants in the Palermo 'hood of Buenos Aires.

We've walked past The Remington a bunch of times over the past couple weeks, and today was the first time we've seen more than two tables occupied. But we can't figure out why it isn't bustling. The food is great--and cheap--and the service is just as smooth as you'd expect from any of the places in Palermo. True, there's no "cocktail list," but there is a full bar.

The folks over at Argentina restaurant guide Guía Oleo can't seem to figure it out either: Only one of eight amateur critics there give it a bad review. Yet the place stays quiet, even at 11 pm, prime restaurant hour in BA.

So despite our don't-go-to-empty-restaurants policy, we ducked in for a prix fixe lunch one day--and it was terrific.

The Best Dining in Palermo: Bar Uriarte

This week, we're highlighting the best restaurants in the Palermo 'hood of Buenos Aires.

Sucre is debatably the most sizzling restaurant in BA, but since it's not in Palermo, it can't make our map. Luckily, the owners of the super-trendy spot have opened Bar Uriarte, a few blocks over from Mott.

Like its neighbor, Bar Uriarte is just as much about a chichi scene as it is the food. But here, too, that's not to say the grub isn't up to snuff.

The Best Dining in Palermo: Olsen

Where: Gorriti 5870, Buenos Aires, Argentina

This week, we're highlighting the best restaurants in the Palermo 'hood of Buenos Aires.

Today's pick gets so much hype, it almost seems unnecessary to include it. But if it's a list of great Palermo restaurants we intend to make, Olsen has to be on it.

The too-cool-for-school Scandinavian spot has been seen in just about every glossy magazine and design book, thanks to its exquisite decor and foxy waitstaff decked out in Penguin polos. Having an almost endless list of vodkas can't hurt either.

Dinner is a mix of Northern European (think smoked salmon) and Argentine (think pork shoulder), while lunch starts at noon and offers a short menu from which you mix and match an entree and two sides.

We'd recommend reservations for the insanely popular Sunday brunch service, but other times you can probably walk in. Oh, and they have WiFi, so you won't miss a moment of what's hot on the architecture blogs!

The Best Dining in Palermo: Mott

Where: El Salvador 4685, Buenos Aires, United States

This week, we're highlighting the best restaurants in the Palermo 'hood of Buenos Aires.

While cozy Standard is nestled on a quiet street corner of Palermo Hollywood, Mott is in the thick of the flashiest part of the nabe. That explains the massive bar and towering liquor shelves--and the outrageously long cocktail list.

But chef María Lancio's "market cuisine" also deserves some attention--and we've got lots of love for female chefs!

The Best Dining in Palermo: Standard

Where: Fitz Roy 2203, Buenos Aires, Argentina

This week, we're highlighting the best restaurants in the Palermo 'hood of Buenos Aires.

It was about two seconds after we saw Standard listed in our Wallpaper guide to Buenos Aires that we knew it was worth checking out.

With hand-lathed wooden fixtures, white granite floors and cool black-leather-upholstered bar stools, the food could've been sub-par and we still wouldn't have been upset. But what comes out of the kitchen might be the best thing about Standard, our new favorite spot in BA.
