Buenos Aires and Mendoza, Argentina, are now destinations endorsed by the Michelin Guide

Buenos Aires and Mendoza, Argentina, are now destinations endorsed by the Michelin Guide, as the famed culinary guide decided to review Argentina’s restaurants, the first Spanish-speaking country of Latin America to achieve this.

The announcement was made this Tuesday by Argentine Tourism Minister Matías Lammens and Michelin Guide Communications Director Elisabeth Boucher-Anselin, in an event held in Buenos Aires.

“According to our inspectors, Buenos Aires and Mendoza are first level culinary destinations,” Boucher-Anselin noted. “As a capital city, Buenos Aires is also a breathtaking metropolis that offers a wide range of architecture, culture and cuisine, with fancy restaurants to casual bistros backed by international and local foodies.”

She added that the first selection of restaurants for both locations will be unveiled on November 24 of this year.

“Buenos Aires and Mendoza are just the first places that have been reviewed, but the goal is to expand this selection to other places in Argentina,” said Lammens, who revealed that the negotiations to include the country in the culinary guide began about a year ago.

Michelin, which evaluates over 16,000 restaurants worldwide, made Argentina only the second Latin American country to be included in their iconic red guides - after Brazil.

Buenos Aires and Mendoza are the two most visited Argentine cities by foreign tourists, with around 65% and 10%, respectively, of a projected 7 million tourist arrivals this year.

That's the greatest disadvantage tourism in Argentina has: it's a 14-hour flight from most major airports in the first world.

Sure enough, around 80% of inbound tourism is from neighboring countries - even more if you include day-trippers.

They've recently added a terminal to the main international airport (Ezeiza), so that at least helps.
