Núñez: new bars and restaurants in an increasingly tempting neighborhood


Highlights: Five new restaurants and bars to visit in the neighborhood of Núñez. The culinary scene started slowly, more than a decade ago, with some grills and pizzerias. Besares Dolce is the "sweet brother" of the three "Besares" grills that are already a classic of the neighborhood. Ruíz Rotisería is located in a corner with an open kitchen, the classic refrigerator counter and a mini bar to eat sitting inside. The concept is to deconstruct that that you have to be in a sophisticated and very familiar room.

More than ten years ago it began to establish itself as a great gastronomic pole that grows in diversity and attractiveness.

The charming neighborhood of Núñez meets all the requirements to consolidate itself as a gastronomic pole. Starting with the location that allows access from General Paz Avenue, Leopoldo Lugones Avenue and Libertador, Cabildo, Crámer and Congreso avenues. Also, it is one of the closest to the party of Vicente López, so the neighbors of the northern zone take a few minutes to arrive.

The culinary scene started slowly, more than a decade ago, with some grills and pizzerias. Currently, the proposal is very varied and complete with restaurants, sushi places, specialty cafes, pastry houses and more.

The openings are constant and well received by the neighbors who, far from denying the clusters of people who come to the neighborhood and the few places to park, value the growth of the area and turn the bars into mobile offices.

Five new restaurants and bars to visit in the neighborhood of Núñez

Dolce Kisses

Besares Dolce, the newest in the area.

Attached to Besares, a grill that arrived in the neighborhood 14 years ago, when the neighborhood was just that, a neighborhood and not a gastronomic pole, is Besares Dolce. It is the "sweet brother" of the three "Besares" grills that are already a classic of the neighborhood.

It is an artisanal pastry shop that opened two weeks ago, with a wide and defined proposal: quality and homemade flavors. You can try croissants ($250), puddings ($600 a serving), muffins, variety of alfajores (black forest, cornstarch, chocolate, ganache, berries, mousse, etc.) and tarts.

Ono of the most requested products: cake shots (from $ 750). Served in plastic cups they are ideal to eat on the way home or to take an assortment and try different cakes such as chajá, chocotorta, Oreo, strawberries with cream and others. All handcrafted.

The coffee of Besares dolce.

The room has capacity for 24 diners, but in the external gallery enter another 16 and also has outdoor tables. All the sweet proposal is in sight, to be tempted and accompany the coffee (which comes with latte art included) with something sweet.

Thinking that customers may want a small sweetness, there are alfajores chicos and mini rogel ($ 250), ideal to get the desire but without overeating. And if, on the contrary, the idea is to take the whole cake, just request it and in a few hours it will be ready.

Part of the offer that can be eaten in Besares Dolce.

For midday vegetable, chicken or caesar wraps ($2,000), salads ($2,500), sandwiches (from $1,600) and pies ($1,800). I could not miss the tostón with avocado and scrambled eggs, which due to its size supplies a meal without problem. Also proposals without TACC and soon will add tapas, wines and cocktails. The place is pet friendly.

Open every day from 8 a.m. to 20 p.m. September 11, 1888, 3351. Instagram: @besaresdolce

Ruíz Rotisería

Away from the hustle and bustle and in an area where it is possible to park without having to go around many times, for three months, is this vintage rotisserie but with an undeniable gourmet touch.

Surrounded by trees, neighborhood silence and close to the Mitre train, it is located in a corner with an open kitchen, the classic refrigerator counter and a mini bar to eat sitting inside. On the sidewalk, there are tin tables for outdoor dining. Of course, like any rotisería, food can be taken away and enjoyed at home.

The concept that its creators want to convey (owners of renowned restaurants and bars such as the brand new Aguila Pabellón) is to deconstruct that to eat well you have to be in a sophisticated room.

"It is not like that, you can eat delicious, with a well-executed kitchen and with a twist, sitting on the street accompanying with a wine from the best sommelier in Argentina, Agustina de Alba who is the one who made Ruíz's wine list," says Pedro Díaz Flores, partner of the place.

The classic dishes are not lacking in the menu, so you can order half a chicken or whole chicken spiedo with butter and herbs ($ 4,490 / $ 8,990), vegetable cannelloni $ 1,590, potato and mozzarella bombs $ 990, 3 croquettes from $ 1,710, and potato pie $ 1,710, among others.

Also, full sandwiches of steak-eye milanesa, gírgolas or chicken, starting at $ 2,890. The desserts, in "to go" format are chocolate mousse, flan with dulce de leche and cream and pancake with dulce de leche (from $ 1,000).

Ethnic group

Etnia, since March in Nuñez.

As the name implies, it is a restaurant that opened its doors in March, whose concept is to unite different ethnicities in a dish to create a different experience.

They use products and cooking creating new and signature fusions to surprise diners. "The idea is to sell a complete experience, from the moment the customer arrives until they leave. I put in one place everything I like," says Alfredo, chef, owner and creator of the venture.

The decoration has warm nuances, with light woods and low lights. It is a fine dining with avant-garde cuisine that offers an 8-course tasting menu ($ 23,000 with wine included) but you can also choose a la carte.

The most captivating options are prawns flambéed with mango sauce ($2,900), ceviche ($3,900), potato croquette with yolk heart ($2,300) and grilled octopus ($8,900) with anticuchera sauce garnished with saffron risotto garnish.

One of the standards of the kitchen is to balance the flavors, mixing different ethnicities forming colorful dishes full of flavors. They work with many exotic proteins such as duck, octopus, rabbit and lemonfish.

The wine list displays 60 labels from large wineries and other boutiques. There are classic cocktails reverted in the Etnia manner (from $1,500). As a courtesy, each diner is given an appetizer and a vermouth. Those who go with a car, will have 2 hours free in the parking lot three blocks from the premises.

Open from Monday to Saturday from 20 to 24. February 3, 3845. Parking at 3 de Febrero 3446. Instagram: @etnia.cocina


Zuka, specialty coffee in Núñez

Its name is an adaptation to the term Sukha which in Sanskrit translates as "state of true and permanent happiness". Those values are what the friends and partners who opened this café five months ago sought to replicate.

Tranquility, positive energy, pleasure and well-being. All this is reflected in the brand design, both in the curved architecture, as well as in the crockery and service. The place is small and cozy, with colors that allow you to relax and "lower a change" of the daily routine.

It has a low table with armchairs that they call "the living room" and six tables that can be accommodated at ease with a corduroy armchair on the wall. There is also a bar for those who like to have a specialty coffee overlooking the street.

The Italian coffee maker attracts attention for its size and design. They have a special grinder and cups created especially for them. Sweets are on display. You can see portions of red velvet cake, carrot cake, key lime pie and more (from $ 1,700) special cookies ($ 680), alfajores with raspberry or lime and pistachios ($ 700). TACC free options and sophisticated pastries (from $380).

For lunch or brunch from 10 to 16, there are avocado toast and bruschettas, starting at $1,750; house Caesar salad (with chicken, avocado, lettuce, parmesan and croutons) $2,280; Vegan bowl (babaganush, mushrooms, roasted vegetables, zucchini, pickled onion, cauliflower vinaigrette, tahine and lime, accompanied by seed toast and sourdough) $ 2,650.

They offer weekly lunch from Tuesday to Friday from 12.30 to 15.30 with cafeteria, cold drink, brunch or sandwich option or Daesar salad and pastry $ 3,180 and executive brunch, $ 2,980. Being on a street where there are no buses and few cars, the tranquility is complete. There are tables on the sidewalk and soon they will make the deck on the street. Everything they offer, can be ordered to go. Pets are welcome.

Open Tuesday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 19.30 p.m. Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from 9 to 20. Greece 3437. Instagram: @zukacafe.


Norimoto: sushi with innovations.

About to turn a year in the neighborhood, the place is distinguished by its proposal: Norimoto is not a usual Japanese food restaurant. It is a place for those who do not look for the classic roll but dare to try new flavors.

In its menu, it defines itself as "the first hand roll bar in Buenos Aires". The proposal includes different types of fish accompanied by rice soaked in soy sauce and served on a crispy seaweed, crowned with different homemade and spicy toppings (hand roll combos for 4/6/8 units and cost from $ 4,400).

Here comes the difference with traditional rolls: this one is not served cut into slices, but whole. So that the seaweed does not soften it is recommended to eat it (by hand) as quickly as possible. They also offer nigiris and sashimis (2 units from $ 1,600 and special versions from $ 1,900).

The space is warm and small. Part of the Norimōto experience is sitting at the bar, where you can watch the itamae (expert Japanese cook) prepare everything live and live. This allows conversations to be generated with customers and even new dishes to emerge to their order. This dynamic is called "Omakase", which means "I leave it to you".

A curious fact is that although they only have 14 seats, they have a very large rotation and reach 150 covered in a day. If there is no place when you arrive, you have to sign up for the waiting list, which is made more enjoyable with a glass of wine, a Japanese sake or a beer.

Open daily from 12 to 0. Reservations are not accepted. Av. del Libertador 6739. Instagram:
