At long last there is a breeze in the air and we aren’t having to shower several times a day. As we prepare to say so-long to summer, our slow decline into hibernation mode has begun. In other words, our appetites are back and we’re looking to gorge. This week we’ve got you covered on where to eat, what workshops to take, and what fairs to hit up for all your culinary fulfillment.
MASA Invades Banquito Rojo
Your weekend is over and work today was a struggle. Reward yourself with the mouth-watering Mexican flavors of your favorite taco pop-up in town. You already know the only place to go on Mondays is MASA (run by our favorite chef Kevin Vaughn). So what are you doing? Get down there. And grab a beer while you’re at it. It’s Monday people, you deserve it.

Head to Sede Whisky Bar for a tasting menu that fuses our favorite Asian classics with an Argentine flair. Think nigiri with a chita sauce, a tartare brûlée with wasabi emulsions, bread, and cured yolk, with wagyu (a Japanese breed of cattle), fig and tomato salad, and sweet potato confit. With a dessert that includes a single malt salted caramel, this is the dinner we’ve been dreaming of all our lives. Cost is $500 ARG and reservations can be made through shooting a message to their Instagram here. Reserve quickly because only the 20:00 time slot still has openings!

Stella Artois’s shared table series is back this week with two killer Japanese-American chefs set to host a dinner at our beloved Usina Del Arte. The menu starts with miso chicken wings, a sushi pork roll, and corn on the cob to nibble on. From there you’ll enjoy a variety of foods from trout Usuzukuri to American style hot pot, and a classic apple pie for dessert. With this setting and this menu we promise the big bucks (999 ARG per ticket) will be well spent. Buy tickets here.
