La Boca

Patagonia Sur

Rocha 803
Buenos Aires, Argentina
TEL: 54-11-4303-5917

Bringing the gaucho tradition to La Boca, famed pampa chef Francis Mallman set up his grill at this renovated Italianate town house not far from the brightly painted houses and tango dances on Caminito. The menu, as meat-centric as any, is a three-course sampler (there’s no a la carte) centering on Argentine specialties like succulent roasted Patagonian lamb and ojo de bife, aka rib eye, with chimichurri, as well as soulful plays on empanadas and veggies. As is the menu, the wine list is quite pricey, offering up bottles from top Argentine bodegas.

Insider Tip:

Owner chef Francis Mallmann is the author of Seven Fires: Grilling the Argentine Way, which is based on the Gaucho and Indian open fire cooking he grew up with in Patagonia.
