Hg2 : The Hedonist


Although it looks more like a Swiss chalet with the interior design courtesy of Hugh Hefner than a Buenos Aires hotspot, the view of the world’s tallest tower (well this week anyway), the Burj Dubai, leaves no doubt as to your location. Take a table on the terrace or sit inside and watch a whole lamb slowly turn on the central asado spit the restaurant takes its name from. In a city where service at even the most expensive restaurants often vacillates between incompetent and oppressive, from the knowledgeable sommelier to the waiter that presents you with the raw cuts of cow before they hit the grill, everyone here has been well-trained and it shows. Steaks, from dainty lady-cuts to slabs as big as saucepan lids, are accompanied by fat-cut chips in a hearty Jenga formation. Saturdays also offer dirty dancing in the form of occasional tango classes and all-the-meat-you-can-eat brunches, where the cuts are carved directly onto your plate.
