Casa Saltshaker

International in Recoleta & Barrio Norte

Ex–New Yorker Dan Perlman is the chef behind this respected place, which is a puerta cerrada (closed-door restaurant) in his own home. You'll need to book ahead, arrive at an appointed hour and sit at a communal table, which can be a lot of fun – especially for solo diners. Address and phone number given upon reservation.

Expect a five-course set menu focusing on creative Mediterranean- or Andean-inspired dishes.
