After browsing restaurantes mendocinos in our hostel on day one, Margaret and I had too many culinary adventures to choose from. Everything looked so delicious, yet we only had 3 days to spend in Mendoza. When it came time to make decisions, we relied on advice from a combination of sources including NYTimes articles, restaurant reviews, and excerpts from my Argentina travel guide. Good choice? Most definitely. On night number two, we had reservations at what may be Mendoza’s best restaurant and what this article calls Latin America’s 37th best.
What is the restaurant? 1884 Restaurante – Francis Mallman in Bodega Escorihuela. What do they have to offer? Only a 36-page wine list, really delicious food, and free bread that never stops.
Seating areas. Where are the people? It was a little chilly that night, so most people (including us) were inside or in the other outdoor area, close to the fire.
Pears, pistachios, cashews, helado de vainilla. Many of my favorite things in one dish.
Going to Mendoza? I would highly recommend eating at 1884 Restaurante – Francis Mallman. If you need more convincing, you should check out the photo gallery and general information on their website.
