PLACES. AMERICA, NORTH. MEXICO CITY.
Mexico City is finally being recognized as a centennial capital of good dining. And still it is way underestimated. Restaurants like Garum prove it single-handedly. If CDMX’s Michelin-Guide-less condition were different, ibicenco Chef Vicente Torres would score an accolade in an instant.
Vicente is a brilliant cook and restaurateur with a solid track record in my home town. At his latest venture he displays creative cuisine with eclectic ingredients, in a luxurious-yet-relaxed ambience. His technique is vast and tends to perfectionism, while his flavors are elegant and well-structured. An example is that dish at the top – An avocado aguachile with charcoal-grilled oyster, sea urchin royale, heirloom tomato, serrano chile and salicornia. What is even more remarkable is chef Torres can also knock a killer Rossejat – as homey as Gramma would make.
A must-visit when you’ve had your share of traditional meals in the city.
