Sur Patagónico

Chilean in Santiago

The food is slightly overpriced and service is notoriously slow, but if you can score one of the pretty sidewalk tables on this well-traveled corner, you might not mind – the people-watching is fantastic, especially if you have a cold Chilean microbrew in hand.

The grilled crab claws are ideal for sharing; more substantial Patagonian-inspired options range from octopus risotto to steak and lamb seared on the parrilla (grill). Indoors, you'll find a pleasantly rustic dining room resembling an antique general store.
