Divino Lounge & Restaurant

A sophisticated Argentine lounge that feels like a Latin supper club.

2006 100 VERY BEST RESTAURANTS

THE SCENE. There are really two scenes at this sleek Argentine eatery: One is in the lounge out front, where stylish twentysomethings quaff cocktails and make a meal of South American tapas; the other's in the dining room, a romantic lair with red walls and edgy collages.

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE. The supper-clubby feel and a mostly South American wine list that's full of good deals.

WHAT YOU WON'T.
Service can be slow and uninformed. You can't order from the tapas menu in the dining room (though waiters occasionally can be sweet-talked into it).
