Underground restaurants come in many shapes and forms with outposts in most capital cities.
Speakeasy-underground restaurant trend recently extended its reach to Argentina's main wine region with Ituzaingo, Cocina and Vinos as they simply state it.
Located in the city of Mendoza, Ituzaingo, created by Gonzalo Cuervo is hosted in his home. Cooking is in expert hands of Chef Emiliano.
What to expect foodwise:
"It feels more like a dinner party at a close friend’s than a restaurant. Chef Emiliano whips up small plates that represent cuisine from the different regions of Argentina. Try out a citric pumpkin soup, traditional empandas from Salta and Mendoza, lamb from the south, trout from the east and you can also pick out your own wines to pair with several of the courses."
8 courses with 2 glasses of wine included: $180 pesos
