About the Author
Praise For The Authentic Bars, Cafes and Restaurants of Buenos Aires…
"I love Buenos Aires even when I am not reminded how much I love it. So how could I not wax poetic about The Authentic Bars, Cafes and Restaurants of Buenos Aires by Gabriela Kogan. Beautiful black and white photos complement insights on neighborhoods and advice on the best (what isn't good in BA?) things to eat and drink." --The San Francisco Examiner
"To get to know the heart and soul of Buenos Aires, author Gabriela Kogan insists you need to know its cafes, bars and restaurants. And yet, like most of the big cities around the world, Buenos Aires, too, is facing an uphill battle to maintain its distinctive establishments. Until the 1970s virtually every block had its own cafe. Because of gentrification, various economic crises and other reasons, family businesses are struggling to survive. But the establishments Kogan has chosen counter that trend and still function as meeting places and hangouts. Some specialize in home cooking; others are more specific: steakhouses, pizzerias and coffeehouses. Includes a glossary of food-related items." --The Chicago Tribune
