Here we present our four selected tables in the city. Whether regional or ecumenical, whether strongly Argentinian or European, all of them, proudly from Rosario.
Marcelo Santana’s restaurant qualified, from the very beginning, to be included in the top list. A totally white pleasant decoration surprises the visitor. Sculptures by Julio Pérez Sáenz, under the magnificent lighting by Piedra Buena, who does lighting jobs for the singer Fito Páez, provide an open, very clear space “for people to show off” –as Santana asserted, once he welcomed us.
With a bountiful menu, it does not avoid either American or Mediterranean canons. Cristian Denis, chef at Muelle 1 and devoted to well applied techniques, prepares delicious and perfect dishes, characterized by being elaborated with ingredients of the best quality.
If you choose to taste Rosario’s gastronomy, try some mollejas accompanied by a reduced sauce of balsamic wine vinegar, fresh mushrooms and crisp Parmesan cheese. If your taste leads you to sea fruits, do not hesitate to order puff pastry stuffed with shrimp and prawn paste or a mousse of pink salmon and sole, accompanied by a green-leave bouquet.
