Parrillón de Juan Lacaze

Address: Salta 490 – Monserrat

Located on the corner of Salta and Venezuela Streets, where “Vinería de Monserrat” used to be, the Parrillón de Juan Lacaze decks out as a bodegón (unsophisticated traditional restaurant). With its old recycled furniture, hanging iron lamps, decorative barrels and colorful large bottles, the ambience has a historical atmosphere rather than a rustic one. Even though the specialty of the place is parrilla (barbecue), Head Chef Blanca Corrales does an excellent job and both homemade pasta and pamplonas and chotos are really tasty (typical Uruguayan parrilla dishes, whose main ingredients are chicken or loin fillet rolled and filled with cheese, tomato, pepper and other ingredients).
