The Best Dining in Palermo: Olsen
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!
