In Buenos Aires, dinner happens late. Most restaurants don’t even open until 8:00 p.m., and many locals don’t think of making a reservation before 10:00 p.m. It means that restaurants are packed well into the night, often with couples sharing a bottle of Malbec and several courses by the glow of candlelight. The list of options for a romantic dinner is almost endless. Generally speaking, you’ll find contemporary ambiance in Palermo eateries like Casa Cruz, Old World glamour in Recoleta’s landmark restaurants, and rustic charm in the parrillas (steakhouses) of San Telmo, such as the famous La Brigada.
