robert deniro is still in Buenos Aires and this Friday he arrived at his penultimate day of shooting from Any, a series featuring Louis Brandoni and directed by Mariano Cohn and Gastón Duprat, which will be broadcast on the Star+ streaming platform.

The Hollywood star started the day very early, around 8 a.m., with breakfast at La Biela, the traditional bar in La Recoleta. After his first meal of the day, he passed by Puerto Madero to see the Faena Hotel. And from there he left for the film set located in the neighborhood of La Boca, where he arrived after 9:30 in the morning..

There, De Niro was filming for almost two hours inside the restaurant where he had done it the day before. It must be remembered that the dramatic comedy will have brandoni in the skin of Manuel, food critic and reference of the culture of Buenos Aires who is going through a personal crisis following the death of the housekeeper he had for 40 years. Unable to fend for themselves around the house, and financially crippled after squandering their money, the entry of a new, younger employee into your household will be both a generational and cultural shock.

De Niro will play a foreign friend of Brandoni’s character, so it will be a bond that will have a certain parallelism with the friendship that unites them in real life. On Thursday, the day started in the morning and all the shots were inside. as much as he could tell TV show, the location chosen to film was the Patagonia Sur restaurant, which is temporarily closed. As gastronomy will be present in the plot, it is not surprising that part of the story is linked to the profession of the protagonist.

Around 1:00 p.m. Friday, another entourage arrived on set, consisting of De Niro’s wife, Tiffany Chenand for his daughter Helen Grace. The women strolled through the square, while Robert filmed the only exterior scenes he will have in his attendance, strolling around the bar. A little later they took the opportunity to visit the Andreani Museum and, from the terrace, they photographed the Boca Bridge, the Riachuelo and the horizon seen from there.

After 2:00 p.m., they all retired together in a single van, albeit doubly guarded: in an armored Mercedes Benz, they had De Niro’s security and that assigned to his wife and daughter. The peculiarity of Robert’s visit to Buenos Aires was that by taking one of the central avenues leaving La Boca, was blocked by a demonstration, a picket that interrupted traffic. Once the obstacle was overcome, they arrived at La Faena de Puerto Madero for lunch.

Last night, De Niro dined at La Cabrera, the grill located in the Palermo neighborhood. The actor’s penchant for good food is well known, so the choice of restaurant surely wasn’t random. The establishment has been chosen several times among the 50 best in Latin America and is renowned for its excellent grill.

Given the fame of Argentine meat in general and the grill in particular, De Niro tried different cuts of meat. He ate entrails, eyes and chorizo ​​beef. He didn’t taste offal or order the roast beef, but American style, which is also served there. The actor’s penchant for good wines is well known and he drank one from a classic Argentine winery and with a strain typical of these Pampas: Malbec.

To finish accepted the dessert tasting which included pancakes and chocolate volcano flan and ice cream. Perhaps because we already know that “a full stomach, a happy heart” made an exception and agreed to sign an autograph. He didn’t do it on a delicate piece of paper or on a napkin. They brought him a plate and he wrote in our language:The Cabrera. Thank you. Very good”. He signed it with the familiar Bob De Niro and not with the formal Robert. He added the date and put a BA so that there is no doubt about the city where he is.
