It’s gray, foggy and gross out, and this Friday is a holiday. What’s a girl to do? In addition to all those gastro-tastical events I told you about last week, you can add a few more to your agenda. The “Bodegas Navarro Correas Gourmet Experience” (what a mouthful) was underway last week at Tegui in Palermo, but runs today and tomorrow at Guido and Gran Bar Danzón, respectively. Both happen to be some of my favorite spots in the city, so hop to it.
Guido Restaurant will be providing a three-course menu, at AR$190/person:
Antipasti: Caponatta de berenjenas, Ciambotta, Cous cous, Burrata, Perperonatta, Prosciutto di Parma, Mortadella, Pizzas. Served with Navarro Correas Reserve Chardonnay 2011
First Course: a choice of – Chicken curry risotto, Slow-cooked lamb sorrentinos with truffle cream sauce, or Grilled salmon with pumpkin mash. Served with Navarro Correas Reserve Malbec 2009.
Dessert: Served with Navarro Correas Extra Brut.
Blvd. Cerviño 3943 – Palermo Botánico
Gran Bar Danzón will be serving these delights on Wednesday night
