Five to Try in Palermo Soho

Lately, Palermo Soho has become the trendiest area of Buenos Aires. With good reason... the area is bustling with boutiques, restaurants, hip hotels and bars. This is a great area to visit (and visit often) if you want to experience the vibrant scene in Buenos Aires. United's recent fare sale makes it even easier to spend some time in this glorious city.

When visiting Palermo Soho, here are five restaurants that will give you an opportunity to sample Argentina's delectable cuisine:

Bobo - Attached to the highly recommended Bobo Hotel, the restaurant offers excellent cuisine. If available, order off the prix fixe menu that may include delicacies like salads topped with rabbit, excellent sirloins and amazing desserts.

El Diamante - A small narrow stairwell takes you up to this dark and intimate local restaurant. Great tapas and a hip scene that really gets hopping on the rooftop patio.

Meridian 58 - Corner of El Salvador and Borges - During our last stay in BsAs, this was our first stop and the food here was excellent. The towering windows overlook a few sidewalk tables that are usually taken.

Bar 6 - Great atmosphere - a huge space with tasty prix fixe lunches. Seating is located at regular tables, on couches with coffee tables or from a second floor "loft". Buzzing atmosphere.

Lounging at Bar Seis

Bar Uriarte - Admittedly, we never had a chance to eat there while in BsAs but the bar and restaurant is on nearly every recommended list. Sister restaurant to Sucre and Gran Bar Danzon.

Other good options are Cluny, Lomo and Olsen.

There are plenty of options... pick up a handy Palermo pocket guide on gastronomia (easy to find in stores, restaurants and hotels in Palermo Soho) and you'll have no shortage of places to eat.
