Bar du Marché (Nicaragua 5946, Palermo Hollywood. +54 4778 1050)

For those preferring the savory, this spot will be your shrine. Bar du Marché’s stylish yet casual décor gives a nod to the little sidewalk cafes of Paris and then focuses on its protagonists, great wine and cheese. Regularly offering some fifty wines by the glass, the selection of Argentine wines is inspired, with some great, lesser-known wineries on show, but they also showcase some interesting international wines as well. Best in the evenings, sit down at the bar and let sommelier Juan Pablo Villar show you around his wonderful world. Don’t miss the wine and cheese tasting, which complements the solid French styled menu. For those who are tempted toward Asian fare, an omakase sushi bar upstairs is led by a sushi chef from their sister establishment, M, one of the top Japanese-Peruvian fusion restaurants in town.
