Astrid y Gaston : Lafinur 3222, Capital Federal. Buenos Aires.
Today we had our second time at the peruvian “Astrid y Gaston” restaurant. The first time was very good. That one was just “Ottimo” ! As “pisco” is the national peruvian alcohol, you need to taste one of the 30 or 40 pisco based cocktails. This will likely pave the way for a great moment. At “art de vivre” we are used to talk about what we know and what we experience. To start with we would recommend you one of the many ceviche ( marinated fresh frish ). The pink salmon is especially incredibly fresh and very tasty. This is what i personally had and ate ! All the other fishes are of prime quality as well. Then without a doubt i’d orient you to carry on with “Arroz de mariscos”.
The rice came cooked as a risotto melt with pieces of shrimps, calamari and scallops. With no exageration, the sea food was simply the best i’ve ever had. My wife had the white salmon. Perfectly cooked. Also proposed with a pea risotto. Picture below.
The wine list is exhaustive. We had some per the glass at around 20 ARS or 5 USD. Please NOTE that currently the restaurant is offering a 3 courses lunch menu for around 90 ARS ( 20 USD ). Which in my opinion is an excellent quality/price ratio for BA. On average count on 150 ARS ( 35 USD ) per head with wine, water and coffee.
