Good Buenos Aires Restaurants for Solo Female Traveler?

I will be in Buenos Aires over the next week and I am looking for suggestions for restuarants where it would not be awkward for a female solo diner to dine alone. Any other tips to navigate the Buenos Aires food scene are much appreciated!

Thank you!

  1. Bklyn76 - I am leaving for BA tonight for about a week or so, also a solo female traveler, let me know if you want to meet up and get food to avoid the awkwardness! I will be checking my facebook its

    1. At the corner of Santa Fe and Puyerredon there's a place where I've noticed that lots of women go to dine. It's called Duero and has a new, upscale look. It also has vegetables!! Most traditional porteño restaurants offer only salads and various kinds of potatoes, but here you get vegetables with your main course and can order them on the side as well. They have a broad range of foods. Please do not order the osso bucco. They don't cook it long enough. But if you have access to a kitchen you might want to buy some and cook it at home. It is ridiculously cheap -- people mainly feed it to their dogs! When I prepared it properly my porteño friends were very skeptical, but I won them over.
