You can take a look at the food before you order — the sandwiches of the day, dishes, cakes and sweets are on display on the counter. The chocolate pies are special (the one with mousse, even more so).
This restaurant/bar offers good food and classic drinks from 12 to 4 a.m. — it's a restaurant for lunch and dinner, a coffee shop in the afternoon and bar from 1 a.m. on. The crowd features a mix of ages and types: tourists following a tip, locals who are regulars and celebs like American filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola.
From the second floor of this museum, with plenty of natural light, the view of Puerto Madero is impressive. It was built to house the private collection of businesswoman Amalia Fortabat (her portrait was painted by Andy Warhol).
This small store looks a lot like an old-fashioned tailor's shop. A quick look and the different cuts and trims of the shirts will catch your attention: classically sophisticated with linen and knit fabrics occupying the same racks. The collection also includes shoes, socks and wallets.
There is plenty of art scattered throughout the Carlos Thays Botanical Garden. The taller trees provide shade all year round and the space is nicely populated: everywhere you look is greenery, a fountain or a greenhouse. There are no empty spaces there.
