Gloutonnerie: My Birthday’s choice

GloutonnerieIt´s always a tough decision to choose a place to celebrate your birthday, in my case, I wanted a nice restaurant where I could have excellent food, exquisite wine, nice music and where I could be at ease; for this multiple reasons, it all pointed out to one of my top 5 restaurants in Mexico City: Gloutonnerie.

I first visited this restaurant when it opened it´s doors in 2007 and, since then, I´ve always been an assiduous client. One of the first things I was really amazed by was the decoration, this contemporary-retro place with Art Decó elements positions Gloutonnerie as an ultrachic spot, with elegant taste and a sophisticated touch. Gloutonnerie

Located at Campos Elíseos street, in Polanco, this restaurant is well-known for it´s French-International food. Terrine of Foie Gras, Onion soup, steak tartar, homemade pasta and, in my point of view,  the best Escargots a la Bourguignon in Mexico, are some of it´s delightful dishes made by Chef Anuar Estrada.Escargots a la Bourguignon

As a wine lover I definitively have to talk about the uniqueness of this restaurant´s winery. More than 250 labels from the best wines in the world are gathered in Gloutonnerie’s Winebox. This unique concept helps every person understand, in an easy way, the best way to make the most of each chosen wine: country, region, type of grape, tasting notes and suitable marriage. This fancy box is well-organised by countries in an elegant way making the “wine decision” an interesting, pleasant and fun experience. Winebox

This place is excellent for family and friends reunions, as it has an amazing terrace in which you can have a last glass of dessert wine, Louis XIII Cognac, carajillo or a delightful dessert.terraza gloutonnerieTerraza Gloutonnerie

Mexico City´s Hot Spot

Romita ComedorLast week was crazy, as I had multiple reunions with friends and family whom I hadn´t seen for a while. This social meetings gave me the opportunity to catch up with Mexico City´s gastronomical offers, which I certainly appreciated as I bumped into an it place for every person living or visiting DF: Romita Comedor.

Innovation, art, good music, vintage-chic and, certainly, an amazing environment to grab drinks and dinner with friends, are the words that best define this Porfirian-style house, located in the heart of Colonia Roma. _DSC5292

Authentic Mexican food will be delivered to you throughout a diverse variety of plates such as Tortilla Soup, Pescado a la Talla, Camarones al Mojo, Tacos de cecina, and my favorite, Aguachile de camarón; each one of them carefully elaborated with a gourmet touch, by Chef Juan Carlos Campos, that differs from any other place.

Try the Horchata de Aguacate (avocado martini, horchata, tequila centenario plata and a citric touch), Sangria Romita (red wine infusion with spices, red berries and sparkling water) or the Shot Maracuya (a shot with ketel one, black raspberry, maracuya and champagne). There are equally good options for the non-drinkers as well.DSC_4616

DSC_5345Romita Comedor is definitively a must for every Sybarite person. If you spare some time while waiting for your table, you can take a look at the masterpieces by the artists Richard Mozka and Enrique Metinindez, but I strongly suggest you to make an anticipated reservation, as Romita Comedor is the place to be.
