Palermo, the largest barrio (neighborhood) in Buenos Aires, is the place to see and be seen. Read on for a list of the best restaurants to hit up in Palermo.
For artfully rendered Mediterranean-Argentinian fusion food, look no further than Social Paraíso. Here, chef Federico Simoes serves up dishes like lemon risotto with lamb, melon gazpacho and more. This place has a well-curated wine list, a welcoming staff, and reasonable prices (try the two-course fixed price lunch option). This Palermo Soho venue is a definite yes in our book.

Lelé de Troya
A longtime mainstay in Palermo Viejo, Lelé de Troya is housed in what was formerly a manor house. Impressively, it offers a rooftop dining terrace with a view of the city. Don’t miss the Italian-inspired delicacies like spinach and ricotta ravioli. Or go for something more Middle-Eastern inspired. Top off the meal with a cocktail such as the sweet basil daiquiri or the strawberry caipiroska.

Burge Joint has walls covered in graffiti, a youthful clientele, and a tip jar with the inscription ‘Funds for Justin Bieber’s Hitman’. This might be the hippest burger place you will ever visit. And fear not, the food does not disappoint. The LeBleu burger is a standout, featuring blue cheese, rocket, sun-dried tomato, mushrooms, and caramelized onions. Burger, fries, and a beer for a cheap price — it doesn’t get better than that.
Need a hiatus from Argentinian food? Green Bamboo serves up excellent Vietnamese fare including a mouthwatering pho. There’s also a funky ambiance and good cocktails, in the heart of happening Palermo Hollywood. Save room for dessert. Whether you spring for a bitter chocolate parfait with cardamom, a coconut and mango crêpe, or the lychee and tangerine salad with tangerine sorbet and lemongrass emulsion, you can’t go wrong.
