Sunday Brunch at ElenaFor a chic Sunday repast, head to Elena at the opulent Four Seasons Hotel in Recoleta. Like any Buenos Aires event worth its salt, brunch here is late, 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. But let go of preconceived notions: You’ll find no pancakes or waffles, nor even a menu—this buffet table groans beneath a gargantuan spread of charcuterie, fish and seafood, salads, meats and sides, pastas, and desserts. All ingredients are locally sourced, so if you can possibly conceive of something that’s missing, it’s sure to be out of season. Do not miss the dry-aged beef, and save room for the so-called dolce morte, or sweet death, ice cream.
