Where’s the Beef?

By: Anita Draycott

Argentina boasts the best beef in the world. Whereas most North American cattle are pumped with hormones and bred to be marbled with fat, Argentina’s cows are leaner, sweeter and chewier because they range freely on the vast pampas. Sink your teeth into something memorable at these fine tables.

  • Many claim that chef Martitegui’s culinary creations at Casa Cruz (Uriarte 1658) are the best in town. Try the fois crème brulée and veal tenderloin with green pepper sauce and see for yourself why Conde Nast Traveller and Wallpaper magazines raved about this upscale eatery.
