Here are the latest culinary offerings that can’t be missed, as well as tailor-made design concepts that you simply have to see.
Conde Cantina, contemporary Mexican-inspired cuisine
The perfect setting for a spot of modern Mexican cuisine and some delicious and unique cocktails. The concept for this casual and relaxed venue was born in Mexico, in the midst of a hunt for flavors, which was followed by a lengthy investigation, delving deep into ingredients, tastes and local trends, giving life to the mouthwatering menu. Among the recommended dishes are the tuna toast, blistered chilies, pulled pork ravioli and the seafood stew. Be sure to try the Ambar cocktail, made using beer and mescal.
