    A huge art piece dominates the dining room

    Time Out BA calls Christophe ,"a charming chalkboard bistro," which means instead of getting the kind of menu you can hold in your hand, the waitress will bring out a menu written on a blackboard about 3 feet by 2 feet.

    Menu items range from rabbit tarragon (danayoffe had this) to super basil brushed liver salad. According to Time Out, "The daily menu is king, adapted to both what's best in the local market as well as in the mind of the owner-gastronome--Christophe Krywonis."

    I visited Christophe twice. Both times, the Gazpacho soup was ranked delicious by everyone who ordered it. And both times, the Chocolate Moelleux was ranked really superb by everyone who ordered it. Danayoffe claims she'll go back just for the Chocolate Moelleux. Both times I ordered the Ensalada Christophe (per the advice of my first waitress) and I wouldn't hesistate to order it again.

    Appetizers will run around 9-12 pesos.
    Entrees 22-27 pesos
    Desserts 9-14 pesos
    Bottled water 3.5 pesos
    Coffee 3 pesos

    Lunch for two total 89 pesos (including 10 peso tip)

    Favorite Dish: Christophe Salad
    Postre Moelleux
    I was first introduced to Saint Felicien combination wines here. I know some wine connoisseur's in Buenos Aires might deprecate the Fincas Catena Zapata group for mass marketing their wine, but as an American where many of their varieties are unavailable, I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm a convert.
