Although we weren’t supposed to get the official results for the first-ever Michelin Guide for Brazil  (and the first for Latin America) until April 8, as it seems to happen with almost every new update to the guide worldwide, the results were leaked online this morning. Featuring a total of 17 restaurants and 18 total stars, there were no three-star restaurants announced, Alex Atala’s D.O.M., in São Paulo, was the only restaurant to receive two stars. The list includes the majority of Brazilian restaurants that are also included on the list of Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants. Maní, Epice, Roberta Sudbrack, and Attimo, amongst others, were all given one Michelin Star.

For all of you Santiaguinos out there looking for the best place to throw one back in honor the man who rid Ireland of its snakes, look no further than the newly, and officially, inaugurated Cervecería Loom. Owners Chuck and Jaime hold a special place in their heart for what is easily one of the days most readily associated with beer-drinking worldwide, and they’ll have plenty of the beverage to celebrate. While they’ll have plenty of Chilean craft brews on hand like Tubinger, Spoh, and Granizo, they’ll also be offering Irish Car Bombs for those who care to really get in the mood.

Cocina Sin Fronteras Opens In Buenos Aires This Saturday With Lots Of Meat (ES)

Announcing a special dinner in Buenos Aires that will be centered around meat is kind of like announcing a taco tasting in Mexico City. But, when that meat-focused dinner is being cooked by one of South America’s best butchers, and two of Buenos Aires’ top chefs, the offer gets a lot more interesting.

With culinary and cultural festivals throughout South America continuing to grow and become more wide spread, each country’s national celebration has to work hard to stay current and draw major crowds. Now in its fifth edition, Chile’s Ñam, the country’s largest and most important gastronomy festival, will be bigger, better, and more interactive than ever. The festival has expanded to six days, April 14-19, multiple sites, and this year will feature content for professionals in the food world and fanatics alike.

Outback Steakhouse Santiago: Not Quite Right, Not Yet

By Renea Pope

[Outback Santiago]

As a North American living in Chile, I’m always torn when I see a new U.S.-based chain opening. On the one hand, I prefer to dine in local establishments and support small businesses. On the other, a taste of home sure is inviting when you’ve been away for months or years. When I saw Outback Steakhouse scheduled to open in the new Mall Vivo in Los Trapenses, I was a little disappointed that another chain restaurant had made it to Chile. I also knew I would go there to see if I could get that delicious fresh off the grill steak for which Outback is well known.
