A Taste of Argentina - Buenos Aires Cafe Este

Austin is home to many excellent restaurants that serve incredible food and wine from around the world. September is the beginning of our monthly dinner series to showcase "Planet Austin". Each month we'll enjoy the wine and cuisine from the finest international restaurants the Planet Austin has to offer. In addition to great food and wine, we'll also learn how the culture, customs and traditions of each country influenced the menu.

Our first destination is Argentina!

Join us on Saturday, September 15th at Austin's only Argentinean restaurant, Buenos Aires Cafe Este. Enjoy the culinary creations of Chef/Owner Reina Morris. Chef Reina infuses the culture and traditions of her native Argentina into every bite of Buenos Aires impressive menu. From empanadas to churrasco to inventive pasta selections to delicious desserts you will not leave disappointed.

Equally impressive is the sizable wine list which features numerous wines from Argentina. There is something to savor for every level of wine enthusiast. Last but not least, be sure to save room for dessert!

Plan to arrive at 5:45pm. Dinner will begin at 6pm. See you there!

Where will we go next month? Stay tuned!

      Mike, come out if you can. As predicted, there have been a few cancellations. In the future, I recommend RSVPing earlier! See you there!

    all meetups have a large number of people who rsvp and dont show, for a number of reasons. Would it be fair if those of us who didnt make the rsvp show anyway, since I can put money on it that most of the people who did rsvp wont show?

    Happy Monday fellow foodies! I'm looking forward to meeting everyone on Saturday at Buenos Aires. We will have a great time at this exciting restaurant. I will ask the restaurant about extra seating given the interest. I'll provide an udpate asap. Thanks and I'll be in touch!

    Is this an formal pre-fixed meal event for which we need to pay in advance or an 'order from the menu' event?

    September 5, 2012

    • Derek S.

      Lyn, there is no pay in advance or fixed menu for this event. The menu and wine list is extensive. I didn't want to restrict choices for the group.
