▣ Follow Me Through Argentina - Closed Door/Underground Restaurants!

Hola from Buenos Aires,Argentina!

My husband, Larry and I always love to try new things when we travel and our time in Buenos Aires was no exception. When we arrived at our lovely boutique hotel called Hotel Mine (I highly recommend it), we were given a several page list of restaurant recommendations. As I perused the list by restaurant types, I was intrigued by the category called "CLOSED DOOR RESTAURANTS". The explanation stated that well known (and not so well known) chefs open the doors of their homes and invite you to share a meal with other tourists and locals. WOW, I was ready! We chose a place called "SaltShaker"www.casasaltshaker.com/indexen.htm and for $65US per person we were promised a 5 course dinner with wine pairings. Well, our chef, Dan Perlman (originally from Michigan), delivered on his promise.

Shortly after we arrived and were greeted by Dan, eight other people showed up including a couple from San Francisco, a couple plus two (brother and friend) from Australia, a lovely lady from Texas who moved to Buenos Aires without a job (ahh!, youth) and found a job teaching English, and another lovely lady studying Spanish and moving to Denver to find a job (yea, the youth factor once again!). Well, it didn't take long for all of us to become "fast friends" and engage in a  lively conversation all evening! Please note our lovely group picture at the beginning of my blog!

While our dinner was great, the company and "vibe" was more amazing. But with that being said, let me share with you the menu  -

  • "Crudo" de Surubi y Salmon Blanco - transtated, it was basically a sashimi dish with a geletin-style olive tepenade paired with a Brut Rose

  • Cold Gazpacho topped with a savory Sorbet served with a Sauvignon Blanc (I'm stealing the idea regarding a savory sorbet)

  • Buckwheat Crepe Stuffed with an eggplant mousse (one of my favs) served with a Malbec Rosado

  • Chicken Breast topped with a Salsa Picante and Olives served withj a Cabernet Franc Reserve

  • A light Cheesecake with homemade cream cheese served with a Moscatel.

 Bottomline - Awesome concept; great fun and apparently this type of idea is happening across the globe even in the USA where it is quite "illegal". GOOGLE "underground" or "closed door restaurants". CIAO FOR NOW

Playgroup says:

In the US, closed-door restaurants are typically called supper clubs. In the UK and Australia, they're known as underground restaurants. In Buenos Aires, look for puertas cerradas. If you find a closed-door restaurant you'd like to try, sign up for their mailing list or social network feeds.

Excellent guide! Thanks so much for all of the detailed pictures. I used the previous user's suggestion about taping all of the screws and parts to a print out, which helped immensely in the reassemble. The whole process from start to finish took about 3 hours, and there were no surprises. The warnings in the guide about little bits here and there to watch out for were very helpful in avoiding mistakes, so use them!
