Casa Saltshaker’s chef Dan Perlman is seen as a pioneer in the Buenos Aires closed-door restaurant movement. Though numerous similar operations were in the works before he opened his Barrio Norte home to dinner guests, he was one of the first to bring the genre of restaurants into the mainstream, as in traveler consciousness.
Below are photographs from the meal I attended around Cinco de Mayo (click for Perlman’s accompanying post; he keeps a very informative blog about Casa Saltshaker and Buenos Aires restaurants/food). Since my Casa Saltshaker dinner, Perlman has altered the inspiration for his dinners. Prior, he created his menus to relate to nearby holidays; now he selects a few key flavors that inform the five courses, all of which are surprises until diners have the plates in front of them.
