A refreshing alternative to the city’s ubiquitous steakhouses, Oviedo is a Spanish-inspired seafood restaurant in the Recoleta neighborhood. Inside, glass orb chandeliers illuminate the dining room, which is decorated with dark mahogany trim, classic white tablecloths, and ocean-themed artwork. The menu emphasizes fresh fish imported daily from the coastal city of Mar del Plata, with options ranging from raw oysters (a rarity in Buenos Aires) to entrées like baked sole with potato-cauliflower mash. In addition to seafood, the kitchen prepares a small selection of meat dishes, such as venison ravioli. The comprehensive wine list includes both European and Argentinean labels.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
