Definitely on the agenda! Are there specifics? I'm looking for the off-the-beaten track gems.

Bs.As. Like locals

My wife and I are headed to Buenos Aires and Mendoza for a couple weeks. I've seen lots of postings about the best restaurants, but they seem to be skewed towards the white table cloth set.

We love the "best" restaurants, but there are plenty of postings for those. We'd like to know where locals eat. What are the best little out-of-the way places? Where are the dives with the best food? Great places to grab a rink? Best markets to stock our apartment?

Thanks!

Special Occasion, but low key

Now that's one I should have posted in the "What about that restaurant" thread. Have driven by for YEARS (was here a lot before I moved down), and never been.

With that said, I think we actually want to go a step cheaper...and maybe we save Nora for another occasion.

Thanks.

I'm really pretty open on this one. We live in Cleveland Park and have done a lot of the restaurants there, so maybe outside of that cocoon. We like restaurants that are original and use great ingredients. We're willing to try just about anything...

Special Occasion, but low key

Forgot to mention, we're new in town, so don't really know much of what's out there...

Special Occasion, but low key

Looking for a place to go for our first anniversary (tomorrow). We've already done a big celebration at ILW, so we don't want to break the bank. We do want something with great food, but it doesn't have to be a "special occasion" place. In fact, we'd probably prefer it isn't...just something that's nice and comfortable.

Thanks!

Great, Different Recommendation for this Weekend

Reservations would be good.

Oleana sounds good to me, but not sure if would be a crowd pleaser in this bunch. Still...it's SO highly recommended....

Haven't been to the Blue Room in AGES. Always a favorite, and I'd forgotten all about it.

Cuchi Cuchi looks like the best so far, but all of these menus look great!

Thanks! I think I've heard of EVOO, but not the others. I'll check them out!

Colorado Kitchen?

I went once, and they were--I swear--out of food.

I suppose this is a good sign, if you're among the lucky who can actually eat, but well, for the rest of us, it wasn't such a winner.

Great, Different Recommendation for this Weekend

My wife and I are coming to visit this weekend, and are taking some family out for dinner on Saturday. Although I grew up in Boston, I haven't lived there in a long time, and don't know what's good these days. My family gets out a LOT (probably out 3-4 nights/week), so we want to take them someplace that isn't on their usual circuit. They're fairly adventurous eaters, but not Tony Bourdain.

Over the past few years, our standbys have been Hammersley's and Union. Love them both, but want to do something different. Doesn't have to be SE...could be anywhere in Boston/Cambridge/beyond. We're also not trying to break the bank here (though there will be wine, etc.).

We were thinking of Toro, but then I saw that they don't take reservations. Pops was another recommendation. Or Ole in Cambridge (which I tried years ago and wasn't overly impressed with).

What's new, good, and exciting?
