An influx of European immigrants to Argentina in the 20th century left the country?s kitchens reeling with new recipes. Not surprising then that Argentine chef Daniel Lucci deftly knits together flavors from South America, the United States, and the Mediterranean. Pastas pop with Argentine reggianito cheese, and South American fish marinated in cajun spices or white-wine sauces perch atop beds of rice. After dining, companions can tote home bottles of Chef Lucci?s balsamic dressing, which once emptied, double as guestrooms for visiting genies.
