Cuisines from Asia, Europe and just about everywhere are plentiful throughout Buenos Aires, yet Argentines are most often drawn to what's called the parrilla (or grill), a traditional eatery from modest to upscale and noted for grilled cuts of meat, plus sweetbreads, tripe and other taste sensations. French fries and salads typically accompany these beef dishes, although grilled provolone sprinkled with olive oil is also a favorite. Cabana Las Lilas, considered by many insiders as the best parrilla in the city, serves beef exclusively from the restaurant's private ranch and its steaks are something to rave about. Las Cañitas in Old Palermo -- often called Palermo Hollywood -- is a chic neighborhood for dining out, featuring trendy shops, ethnic eateries and bars. Old Palermo is home to the much heralded De Olivas I Lustres, a candlelit enclave serving Mediterranean cuisine amid olive jars, wine bottles and antiques. Excellent seafood places are near the Puerto Madero docks, and Recoleta also brims with quality restaurants and cafés. At tea time, cafés are crowded, and many serve thin sandwiches layered with ham, cheese, tomato, lettuce, egg-salad, or other enticements. Croissants are popular for breakfast or tea, often stuffed with ham and cheese. In Buenos Aires, eateries sometimes have bilingual menus or someone on staff capable of translating into English. Many menus reflect Italian influence with pastas and sauces priced separately, and there's sometimes a cover charge for bread. Tipping (preferred in cash, even when credit cards are used) starts at 10 percent, escalating for outstanding service. Locals lean toward later dinners, typically after 8 or 9 p.m. Restaurants are often closed on Monday nights.
