Alegre: Where Food Is ArtAlegre is the creation of talented young chef Sergio Barroso. Housed in the cool Palacio Astoreca boutique hotel, the restaurant has caused a quiet, but constant, buzz among local foodies who drive 1 1/2 hours to experience his seasonal, ever-evolving menu of what he likes to call "simple, modern" cuisine. The restaurant overlooks an iconic plaza of Valparaiso with bay windows opening out on the bay. What stands out here are the contrasts: Sugary and salty, bitter and spicy notes, along with delicate textures, all mingle in one dish. Try the tasting menu with wine pairings for the most memorable meal.
