Standard

2203 Fitz Roy
Buenos Aires , Argentina http://www.standardbuenosaires.com/
54 11 4779-2774

With its huge picture windows, long red banquettes, and curved wood walls, the Standard takes the style of an Edward Hopper 1950s diner (albeit with a less lonely vibe) and updates it with a minimalist, modern look. The food, designed by chef/co-owner Santiago Garat—who along with four partners owns the nearby Vietnamese eatery Sudestada and Spain’s Sudestada Madrid—mixes old-school recipes with Porteña Moderna cuisine. Alongside classic items like a Milanesa Napolitana—a kind of Argentine Wiener schnitzel with pasta sauce—the menu sports modern touches like a Kir de la Selva (Jungle Kir) made with maracuyá (passion fruit) and champagne.

Insider Tip: Try to get a seat in one of the more private corners, and watch Palermo’s trendy street life through the huge, sound-blocking windows.
