I Fresh Market
Life is too short not to live it intensely – that is I Fresh Market’s motto, which may seem a slight contradiction at first glance, since this is an organic food shop cum restaurant priding itself on healthy living. Worry not. Organic food has not yet kicked off in Buenos Aires, but at I Fresh Market, you will find delicious alternatives to the toasted ham and cheese tostados the Argentines seem to live on, as well as a wide selection of salads and vegetable tarts.
rnTry one of Borja Blázquez’s hot pastrami and pickle sandwiches. Doesn’t sound very organic? Well, no. But we are told it’s healthy if prepared correctly. It may be a bit of a trek to find (all the way down to Puerto Madero) but it’s worth it, and if you are staying at the Faena, this is your moment.
rnI Fresh Market is subtly lit and works for an out-of-the-way dinner date, before you head off to Buddha Bar and then Asia de Cuba on a Wednesday evening.
