Puerta cerrada ("closed door") restaurants are a hit in Buenos Aires. At Casa Saltshaker the concept is simple: guests book online and turn up at chef Dan Perlman's house for a five-course meal en famille.

Dan’s motto is "Food and Conversation," making this a good option if you're traveling alone or fancy meeting new people.
