Museo de Evita
Restaurant Museo de Evita epitomizes the saying ‘buena onda’ – ‘good karma’. This quirky little garden restaurant is situated on a quiet street in Palermo’s posh residential neighbourhood.
rnFriendly waiters serve chef Daniel Cid’s Argentine/Italian dishes, such as risotto with osso buco, scalloped beef, a selection of pastas and the traditional Argentine chunk of beef with rustic mashed potato. Customers start to arrive for a late breakfast, then begin to drip in for lunch.
rnIt’s an all-day kind of place that knowledgeable locals take pride in because it’s slightly off the beaten track, and it incorporates a touch of history: the real Evita Museum is just around the corner at Lafinur 2988. The museum was opened on 26 July 2002 to mark the fiftieth anniversary of Eva Peron’s death, and exhibits all kinds of memorabilia from the 1950s including her clothing. Get your teeth into a bit of Argentine culture and then pile into Daniel’s carb-loading mashed potato.
