Balvanera, the first project of Argentine Chef Fernando Navas (Samba Brands Management, elBulli, Nobu,) represents the cuisine and spirit of Buenos Aires – porteña cuisine with influences from the dynamic regions of Argentina. The menu, from inspired and traditional small plates and composed vegetable dishes to signature carnes and friends&family style platos, is a journey from Fernando’s upbringing in Punta Alta through his time working in great kitchens in Barcelona, Miami and New York City.

The beverage menu has been developed in collaboration with Argentine Sommelier Sebastian Koncurat Urondo and award-winning mixologist Christian Sanders of craft cocktail group, Druff Hoff Hospitality. The program showcases a noteworthy selection of new world wines (primarily Argentine,) some old world gems and a particular selection of beer (Argentine favorites, Chef’s after-work special, and specialty brews developed by our friends.) Wine is available by glass, carafe or bottle – accommodating guests with a wide range of options for value/price point. For low alcohol libations, Sanders highlights sherry, vermouth, specialty small batch aperitifs – as well as a Sangria de la Casa.
