Here you have the best closed-door restaurants in Buenos Aires. Behind closed doors, however, the city offers a wide range of culinary experiences led by chefs working out of private establishments. Known as puerta cerradas, or closed-door restaurants, the scene is big in Buenos Aires – here’s our pick of the best. Depending on where you go you will receive either a creative adaptation of classic Argentine food, or a fusion of Argentine influences with some other culinary genre. Furthermore, the meals can be very diverse and I have heard of some having ten courses. Generally, the chef will pair certain dishes with favorite wines or sparkling wines, and your glass will not run dry.
La Pasionaria is an antiques shop and new closed-door restaurant housed in an old train warehouse in Palermo. Run by a longtime Argentine antiques collector (and renaissance man) Pancho Salomón, La Pasionaria is full of unusual items he’s collected over the decades from countries all over the world, mostly by way of immigrants who have settled in Argentina
This place falls somewhere in between closed door setting and restaurant. It has received amazing reviews and is a seven course meal that embodies the wide and unique cuisine of Latin-America.
Founded in 2005, Casa Saltshaker is one of the city’s oldest puerta cerradas. The brainchild of Michigan native and chef Dan Perlman, the intimate shared-table experience facilitates new friendships as much as it does a stellar, five-course meal
Diners choose one of three Argentine-specific themes: ‘Terroir and Flavors’, ‘Learning About Yerba Mate’, or ‘Tango and Asado’. Each dining experience offers some element of cultural immersion – for example, a tango class – and comes courtesy of the dedicated multilingual staff (with seven languages among them, no less).
