Paraje Arévalo

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Modest, unfussy and heartfelt cooking
from a dynamic duo

An antique bicycle propped below a window peeking into an open kitchen epitomises what this hidden gem of a restaurant is all about.

Situated on a quiet Palermo Hollywood corner, Paraje Arévalo is the brainchild of the young but experienced chef/owner duo Estefanía Di Benedetto and Matias Kyriazis, who describe their offering here as ‘cocina de influences’ (cuisine of influences).

Sleek white linens, checkered tile flooring and an old-fashioned refrigerator complete the restaurant’s simple yet playful design, which makes a fine backdrop for the kitchen team’s stunning-looking plates.

Paraje Arévalo offers a monthly-changing prix fixe tasting menu of six or eight courses. Dishes are minimalist but high-impact, featuring just two or three ingredients making for great clarity of flavour – as demonstrated by the salmon cooked at 55ºc in beet juice.

Ultimately, Di Benedetto and Kyriazis succeed in delighting and surprising diners fortunate enough to get a table.
