1884, arguably the most famous restaurant in Mendoza, is owned by celebrated chef Francis Mallmann. Tucked into the Romanesque Bodega Escorihuela in Godoy Cruz, 1884 is an elegant endeavor for those with a hearty appetite. A master griller with rustic Patagonian roots masterfully refined in the kitchens of France, Mallmann has a talent for transforming simple cuisine into a sophisticated dining experience. The in-house sommelier will recommend the perfect wine from a 60-page wine list to accompany your meal. Chef recommendations include the Bife de Lomo Aplastado, Cordero Siete Horas y Medio, or Chivito de Malargüe. You definitely need a reservation, and finagling a table in the courtyard is highly recommended.
