From the first mouthful of foie gras to the last smear of crème brûlée, the food at Opera bears the mark of classic French cooking, but it's made with the best Chilean ingredients. Hefty mains include lamb shank in a Cabernet reduction or the perfectly pink veal ribchop in a buttery béarnaise.

The upstairs sister bar, Catedral, does simpler but equally excellent food. The stunning antique corner building is a national historic landmark.
