Just a quick reminder – Father’s Day is tomorrow! If any of you have fathers/stepfathers/fathers-in-law/baby daddies/etc in Buenos Aires, there are lots of places that will be hosting special lunches & dinners -many of them fancy pants – to honor those men in your lives.
The Park Tower will be serving up a badass buffet from 1-5PM tomorrow that will serve up everything from caviar to creme brulee. The price – AR$320/person, which includes all beverages (wines from St. Felicien). For reservations, call 4318-9211. Av. Libertador and San Martín – Retiro.
L’Orangerie at the Alvear Palace in Recoleta is puttin’ on the ritz with a huge buffet lunch celebration that will include live music, entertainment for the kiddos, and more. It’ll cost you AR$530/person (AR$360 for kids – hurry, start trying to look like you’re in pre-school) and is sure to be a Sunday to remember, if only for the damage it will do to your credit card. For reservations call 4808-2949 / 2100. Av. Alvear 1891, Recoleta.
The Hotel Madero – in Puerto Madero, por supuesto – will also be serving up a brunch (I sense a theme here), with oysters, antipasti, seafood, pastas, measts, and more – all served up with wines by Luigi Bosca. Adults will pay AR$310, chillin will pay AR$160. For reservations call 5776-7676. Rosario Vera Peñaloza 360, Puerto Madero.
La Panadería de Pablo in San Telmo is a perfect spot for the laid-back dude who wants some good lunchtime eats in a hip environment. Sunday brunch is great – a good mix of sweet and savory offerings – and it’s very kid-friendly so families won’t feel like they’re getting the death stare if they show up with their brood. Service is a bit slow, so you’ll have plenty of time to talk about how much dad means to you. Defensa 269, reservations 4331-6728.
Ok, so the bruch theme might be a little worn out – no biggie. Sanbenito in Belgrano is classic enough for a traditional dude, but with a twist to make it cool and fun at the same time. The menu offers a wide variety of dishes, all tasty and homemade with a gourmet touch. The service is up to snuff and it’s a great place to go in a group. Check it out at Av. Federico Lacroze 2136. Reservations 4771-1859.
