A restaurant all to myself. And the waiter.

After an all-night flight on my way to Salta, Argentina, I had a five hour layover at the Buenos Aires airport. Continuing my pursuit to visit all of restauranteur Francis Mallman's incredible restaurants, I took a car into the city to have lunch at his famous restaurant Patagonia Sur in BA’s colorful La Boca neighborhood, then head back to the airport. I asked my travel agent to make a reservation and when I got there they unlocked the door and let me in. There was no one there but the extremely nice waiter. I asked “Where is everybody?” and he replied: “We’re normally not open for lunch, but you had made a reservation so we opened up for you.” Incredible.

It was just me and the patient waiter, with me giggling and pounding the table as I took my first bite of each course. I can only imagine what it’s like with people. Pinch me.
