This inventive molecular gastronomy restaurant in the crumbling old neighborhood of San Telmo is a pleasing study in contrasts. Based on the industrial open kitchen and concrete floors, you'd be forgiven for expecting an aloof, so-chic-it-hurts atmosphere. But the chill, hipster staff is adorably eager to answer questions and explain the menu. Chef Alejandro Digilio specializes in unforgettable nine-course tastings, prepared with obvious enjoyment and little pretense. Digilio worships at the altar of the seasonal, so much so that you half expect the sous-chef to bustle through the door midmeal with ingredients from the market. Local bottles rub shoulders with little-known imports on the wine list, but don't order a single bottle. Instead, go for course-by-course wine pairings, curated and explicated by the friendly sommelier. Be warned: If you're in the market for a quick bite, this is not the place for you. But if you're prepared to linger over a fascinating and multitextured meal, come here, and come hungry. The menu is posted on chalkboards overhead and changes frequently, but be on the lookout for suckling pig served with mushroom powder; salmon in ginger-lime broth with warm cherries; and tender, flavorful pulpo that will make a convert of the octopus-averse. Though expensive by B.A. standards, La Vinería offers incredible value for your money. Order the tasting menu and wine pairings, and finish with the flight of coffees, and you still won't spend more than $100 per person.

Open Tuesdays through Sundays 1 pm to 4 pm and 9 pm to midnight.
