VIP Club San Miguel: "The Smart Fit"

Saturday, November 22, 2014

This Newsflash is being sponsored by Buenos Aires Bistro, Mesones #62, 154-6390. Formally El Tomato, a well-known and respected San Miguel's vegetarian restaurant, Mariano Alvarez purchased and took over the reins of El Tomato a few years back. Because of the eatery's sterling reputation he kept the name but gradually, with his flair for South American cuisine, incorporated Argentine/Ialian dishes made up of meats, empanadas, fishes and pastas. Recently, and perhaps more appropriately, the name of this hallmark San Miguel restaurant has changed: "Buenos Aires Bistro!"

Buenos Aires Bistro — an intimate setting for you to discover a little piece of Buenos Aires in San Miguel de Allende. Fine yet casual dining as you would encounter in the capital of Argentina, with traditional dishes such as Empanadas, Provoleta, Certified Angus Beef steaks, ravioli, gnocchi, pastas, risotto and a wide selection of Argentine wines.

Open seven days a week, Noon 'til 10 pm, later on weekends. (see attachments)
