Widely praised for its well-presented nouvelle Argentine cuisine when it opened in 2006, Chila remains an elegant (if slightly stiff) favorite of business types, big-spending locals, and special-occasion visitors. Leather seats, bookcases, low couches, and warm lighting give the dining room a sexy librarian vibe; at the rear of the restaurant, a long patio overlooking the Rio de la Plata offers a darker, glossier option. The bold fare references French techniques in dishes like classic châteaubriand, and succulent duck magret with onion Tatin. But the kitchen also offers steak alternatives such as quail, rabbit, and deer loin, which are relatively uncommon in B.A. dining rooms. The real draw, however, may be the 1,200-bottle-capacity wine cellar, stocked with over 200 varieties from across South America. Share the impressive "chocolate tasting" dessert course to finish, and then walk it off on the riverfront.

Open Mondays through Thursdays 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm and 8 pm to midnight, Fridays and Saturdays 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm and 8 pm to 1 am, Sundays 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm and 8 pm to midnight.
