Nothing's humdrum at lunchtime hotspot Cafe San Juan, where slick, minimalist red accents offset the classic checked tile floor of the small dining salon. Choose from a chalkboard list of daily specials that include thoughtful gourmet updates to your Spanish great-aunt Beatriz's home-cooked pasta dishes, along with hearty, beef and veggie-heavy traditional Argentine country cuisine. A concise wine list opts for tasty regional selections. Reservations are a must; best bet is to book for an early lunch and cross your fingers that a table in the lovely courtyard will free up.
