El Viejo Molino was once a flour mill for the Chubut River Valley‚Äôs burgeoning wheat harvests. This fine bistro has many special plates, such as table de ahumados, or an antipasto with smoked meats and cheeses of the region, tallerines di sepia con frutos di mare (squid ink pasta with seafood sauce), and cordero al asador (spit-cooked lamb). Even though the menu is devoted to new twists on traditional Argentine dishes, a vegetarian has plenty to choose from. Top the meal off with a decadent dessert like lavender cr√®me brul√©e with red berry sauce and coconut whipped cream. Daily noon-3 p.m., 8 p.m.-midnight.
most dishes $10-16, plus $1.50 table charge.
