Balvanera’s signature Argentine-style empanadas are baked instead of fried, and are a perfect handheld snack for any time of day. These are filled with corn & provolone cheese!
Balvanera is the name of a historic neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where poets, musicians, and artists once gathered. At Balvanera on New York’s Lower East Side, chef Fernando Navas is cultivating that same spirit in an elegant and laid-back restaurant, with a menu of traditional porteña cuisine and gaucho-style asado feasts inspired by regional Argentinian cooking. Navas spent time in the kitchens of legendary restaurants including elBulli and Nobu before returning to his Argentinian roots (he’s from Punta Alta) to open Balvanera in 2015.
