San Telmo’s food scene has always drawn visitors to this southern Buenos Aires neighborhood, but there are some new kids on the block of late who are killing it in the kitchen. We check out some of the best new restaurants in San Telmo.
Oui oui, of course you want the most delicious French bread, pastries and coffees in San Telmo, and Merci is where you’ll find them. This slice of Paris fits snugly into the covered San Telmo market, and in winter you can warm your cockles with a rich French onion soup or a croque-monsieur. If you order a bottle of wine on Fridays before 8pm, you get some free tapas. Merci indeed!
It may not be new to Buenos Aires, but it’s certainly new to San Telmo. With branches already going loco in Palermo and Las Canitas, Buenos Aires’ primo taco joint has brought a decent dollop of Mexico to San Telmo. It may be competing with barrio regulars Che Taco, but Fabrica has been doing this for a while and has built a name for itself on its authentic decor and potent margaritas.
