Or if you are going out with a total wine and cheese snob Bar du Marché should be your jam. Let’s call ‘intimacy’ for what it is, either you are shallow and your date has a serious case of the uglies or you are trying to keep a low profile (you cheating asshole). Dating on a shoestring in Buenos Aires can be quite the challenge, with restaurant prices soaring making even the shitty parrillas an expensive splurge.
Authentic Japanese Yuki in Belgrano has all the elements for a perfect date with great fresh sushi and same side seating booths (eye roll to “you people” who do that), wonderful for slurping up fresh sashimi and sucking up face, simultaneously if you’re into that kinda thing. Whatever your reasons may be, just stay off the Palermo-San Telmo track. Luckily there are still some bargains in the city, where atmosphere and food quality isn’t compromised by lack of pesos.
Las Pizarras in Palermo Soho – get one appetizer and two mains to share, because sharing food is sexy.
Closed door dining searchers celebrating a special occasion I Latina for Caribbean and Colombian flavas should be your answer.
And remember there ain’t no shame in a day drinking date.
Serious eaters who are just as into the food as the company, you need to pick a place where utterly awesome food comes first.
Il Ballo Mattone makes for a fun, lively resto while bar/restaurants like 878, Florería Atlántico, and Gran Bar Danzon are for more serious first daters that want to get their quality drinking on.
A good go-to jam with both great food and mixologist-mastered Dadá is your answer.Another important note: Most girls probably won’t eat on the first date so it’s ideal to choose a restaurant where sharing is encouraged and salads are not available.Girl, if you are an eater, don’t order a salad on a first date – false advertisement.For a taste of Venezuela, Arepera should be your go-to Vene-arepería (and only since there is only like two Venezuelan restaurants in the city).For the Peruvian persuasion, Chan Chan can get loud, lighting is oddly bright and the tables are close together, making it essential for close-talking, and ceviche breath sniffing.Boy, if you are an eater, a girl who orders a salad or doesn’t eat on the first dinner date probably isn’t the one for you.
