Oviedo, Buenos Aires

Concierge.com's insider take:
For 20 years, Oviedo has been the prime destination for Old World Spanish eats in Buenos Aires. The clubby brasserie, all white linen and burnished banquettes, sports a mile-long wine list (featuring home-turf faves from Mendoza and the best of Rioja), a selection of fresh seafood (including the zesty chipirones al pil pil, tiny baby squid in sauce made from peri-peri chilis), and spectacular paellas, including the showstopping Valencian version dyed black with cuttlefish ink. But the centerpiece here, as suggested by the dining room's handsome pig sculpture, is cochinillo a la manera segoviana, Segovian slow-roasted suckling pig served up in all its crisp-skinned, hoof-on glory. They might not cut it with a plate at Oviedo, as they do for tourists back in Spain, but any wayward Spaniard will certainly feel a little closer to home here.
Open Mondays through Saturdays noon to 4 pm and 8 pm to midnight.
