Moveable Feasts is a weekly agenda in which food writer Lola Rubinstein gives us the low-down on what food fairs, pop-ups, closed door restaurants, and other culinary events we should check out in the coming week.
Italian Food Week
This week the best Italian restaurants are offering their menus at discounted prices (ARS $325 and $540). Some chefs are preparing Italian inspired dishes for their non-Italian restaurants (like Aramburu Bis) and some fresh pasta houses and pizzerias (like San Paolo) will join in on the fun. Travel to Italy and experience all of its flavors without having to leave Buenos Aires. The best part: Usina del Arte in La Boca is opening its doors for master classes, music, cinema and tastings from Italy.
