Best Staycation to Latin America


Argentina may be a 14-hour flight from San Francisco, but that doesn't mean you can't take a quick jaunt to South America for a great piece of grilled meat. Chef Alejandro Morgan at Argentine-style grill Lolinda (owned by the same team behind Beretta and Starbelly) is serving up wood-grilled meats, empanadas, and ceviches so good you might spontaneously tango. Add to that bar manger Chris Lane's exceptional cocktail like the The Devil's Backbone ($10, rye whiskey, Lagavulin Scotch Whisky, Averna amaro, Gran Classico, Angostura bitters, orange bitters, orange peel) or the Oaxacan Cross ($10, mezcal, ruby port, lime, pineapple, ginger, maraschino, orange peel) and suddenly the real South American country has a lot to live up to.
