Millón Restaurant . Buenos Aires
Paul had recommended Millon restaurant to us, near the El Sol hostel at Parana and Avenida Santa Fe. We went there with Pablo, and enjoyed a steak dinner with plenty of wine and rich desserts. Millon was an incredible place in an old house, with an upstairs balcony overlooking a beautiful courtyard.
Entering the restaurant was like entering a dark musty mansion. Not much activity in the entry foyer, but arriving atop the beautiful staircase revealed a bustling cacophony of wait staff, hosts, and diners enjoying the best Argentinean food I was about to eat. We were escorted to a table overlooking a quiet leafy courtyard where we spent the next three hours enjoying steaks, fresh roasted potatoes and veggies with a wonderful red wine.
Our young and enthusiastic waiter was surprisingly dressed down wearing a t-shirt and sandals. It certainly didn’t bother me – but was just something different to see. He made us feel more than welcome and was more than attentive, as was a small black cat sitting on the rail overlooking the patrons.
