Tel: 54 11 4854 9131's insider take:

Owner María Morales Miy—leading light in Buenos Aires' puertas cerradas (closed door) restaurant movement, in which chefs cook in their own homes—has long been fascinated by the piquant cuisine of Argentina's northwestern Salta province. Typical dishes, many prepared in a clay oven, include tamales, locro, grilled goat cheese, and charquisillo, a soup made from charqui, a form of jerky developed by the Incas to store meat at high altitudes. Dishes from other provinces include venison raviolones, Patagonian lamb, and grilled Paraná River fish, each matched with wines from the same region.—Colin Barraclough
