Do we need to take any precautions with food and water in these areas? We both like to eat..... any suggestions for great food in these places?? Should we drink bottled water in Argentina?

Food and water are both safe, although the bottled water both still and with bubbles are very good. Salads are excellent, and you'll definately want to eat parilla. Postres (cakes, pastries, etc, are excellent). There are tons of great parillas scattered around the city, the best cuts if you like steak will be bife de chorizo and bife de lomo. Las Cholas, Arce 306, Las Ca�itas was pretty good and had excellent vegetables a la parilla.

Yeah, you need no recommendations. There are so many and definitely don't have to eat at the turisty ones (like Cabana Las Lilas) because you can find the same food at half the price anywhere else...
Next to Patio Bullrich in 9 de Julio Av. there are many, like Piegari. I like 'Ligure' too in Juncal and Esmeralda. If you want a classic, look for 'Los inmortales' in Parana and Arenales. Great pizza but the most important thing are the white and black photos on the wall. They have pictures of GARDEL, our most famous Tango singer/composer and plenty of pictures of Buenos Aires during the 30's
El Pensador (Paraguay y Borges in Palermo), Los Troncos (parrilla in downtown), El Palacio (Palermo).. you can also walk Junin street from Santa fe towards Las Heras and find many good ones. Then, head to La Recoleta and find even more...
For specific recommendations tell us what type of food you enjoy the most. Here is a guide in spanish: http://www.guiaoleo.com.ar/
