Naná — Buenos Aires, Argentina
The much anticipated second outpost of popular Buenos Aires café, Naná has finally opened its doors, this time in the tranquil rose garden of the city’s Tres de Febrero Park.
More precisely located under the railway tracks in one of the historically protected 21 brick arches that now house a selection of hip bars, gym clubs and restaurants, the eatery is suitably imbued with industrial and railway references thanks to architect Alejandro Delisio of local outfit Estudio +3.
Enhanced by large iron-framed windows, which flooded with natural light, the arcade opens onto a secluded patio and beyond that, the park. Meanwhile, custom wood and iron furnishings, leather train-style banquettes and a cement counter complete the look.’We wanted to convey an industrial, clean aesthetic that tuned with the history of the place but also integrated Naná’s identity, which is feminine, romantic and warm,’ explain Paula and Sofía Reynal, the sisters behind the concept.
Chef Hernán Gipponi churns out easy-to-please dishes such as organic Formosa rice with shrimps, bacon, mushrooms, spinach and leek; or expertly prepared Saturday and Sunday brunch including French Toast with mascarpone and berries, homemade foam of yoghurt with fruits, ginger, granola and honey all served with a glass of Aperol Spritz or sparkling wine.
