If you stay at the St. Regis, you should not miss this delightful modern Mexican culinary experience. My wife, ten year old son and I, had dinner for my birthday and we are all still asking for more. But preliminary warning, this is not your traditional Cantina or Burritoville cuisine. Not at all, it is rather a delightful Oasis of Mexican gastronomic treasures. The cadre is sophisticated and inviting with a myriad of innovative dishes that deconstructed traditional Mexican dishes from your average Taco to the more elaborated family reunion's Zarandeado Sea bass! A young team, the Chef Jesus Duran is only 28 and has assembled an incredible team dedicated to push the limits and discoveries of Mexican cuisine. Some extremely original dishes like the Cactus Noodles with Chicatana and leaves and a nice butter reduction with truffles. The 6 courses or 8 courses tasting menu provide you with a great overview of the chef's talent. For dessert the Oaxaca chocolate is exquisite and delicious.
I recommend the outdoor terrace, a romantic and charming peaceful zen place that is so inviting. The service is attentive and well orchestrated by a dedicated "Maître D" Luis Barbara. Equal and respectful attention is given to the children and adults. To my humble opinion, this is by far the best gastronomic destination in the region, recognized by the AAA Five Diamond Award. If you are in the mood, a great Mexican wine pairing option is also available. If not, there are plenty of great cocktails options and some rare tequilas to excite your palette!
I highly recommend our friends from the Michelin guide to pay a visit to the St. Regis and embark on this extraordinary Modern Mexican culinary journey. I am sure they will recognize and celebrate the local gastronomic genius with at least two stars!
