Housed in­side a stun­ning 1920s Belle Époque build­ing in the ul­tra-stylish Palermo Chico neigh­bour­hood, Casa Cavia is a mod­ern cul­tural cen­tre and des­ti­na­tion for the senses. In ad­di­tion to the restau­rant, in­side the re­stored two-story res­i­dence you’ll find a book­store, flower shop, pub­lish­ing house and per­fumery, all show­cas­ing the city’s vi­brant ar­chi­tec­ture, de­sign, lit­er­a­ture and, of course, gas­tron­omy. This col­lab­o­ra­tive and cre­ative spirit has in­spired head chef Juli­eta Caruso to cre­ate the unique menu at Casa Cavia’s newly ex­panded restau­rant and kitchen. Pay­ing homage to Ca­sia Cavia’s pub­lish­ing house roots, the con­cep­tual new menu draws in­spi­ra­tion from a long list of clas­sic books and au­thors from around the world. Each dish con­tains a story and re­lates to quotes from fa­mous lit­er­ary fig­ures, en­cour­ag­ing diners to ex­plore the re­la­tion­ship be­tween food and lit­er­a­ture. “In the same way books can evoke feel­ings, so can food – it can sur­prise you, and make you re­mem­ber things from your child­hood,” says Caruso. “Apart from be­ing tasty, we want to re­ally stir peo­ples’ emo­tions.”
