Concierge.com's insider take:
Dress designer Marisa Carreras restored a century-old casa chorizo in Palermo Viejo to house her clothing collection, devoting the interior patio and ancillary rooms to El Último Beso, a secret garden eatery set amid swirls of trellised jasmine and stone fountains. Leather sofas, wooden tables, and porcelain crockery are all in snowy white, set off by table linen in rose, lilac, and lemon to match Carreras's dress designs. Delicately prepared dishes include sautéed octopus glazed with orange, portobello mushrooms with blue cheese, and a salad of goat cheese, celery, and pear. The kitchen stays open far into the night, but this spot also works well as a daytime retreat from the neighborhood designer dens.—Colin Barraclough
