La Boca is the old port of Buenos Aires, a relatively seedy maritime barrio boasting plentiful graffiti, the stadium of the Boca Juniors soccer team, and the tourist-friendly Caminito, a rainbow-colored alleyway full of tchotchke vendors and impromptu tango shows. (The neighborhood is one of several that lay claim to being the true home of tango.) At El Obrero, the boisterous La Boca cantina (which occasionally receives such drop-ins as the band U2), the shoebox-sized dining room is usually packed, specials are scrawled on chalkboards, and Malbec flows like there's no tomorrow. This is an ideal destination for old-time porteño fare, including the usual meaty parrilla offerings and the wondrous Argentine pot-au-feu known as puchero, a stew of brisket, sausage, calabaza, potatoes, and sliced corn cobs.

Open Mondays through Saturdays noon to 4 pm and 8 pm to 2 am.
