Mexico City, Days Six and Seven

Today we had our class with Ricardo followed by a wonderful comida at Düke, as you will see by the beautiful pictures of our meal taken by Doug Martinides in this third installment by his wife, Kathy, of our video trip log. This is Chef Pedro Abscal’s first restaurant and one we think is going to do very well based on his offerings. Try the vodka, cranberry and rose petal cocktail, it is fabulous! There are a couple of great bookstores next door, too.

Here’s a short video of Chef Pedro talking about his restaurant.

That night a few of us brave souls went to Taqueria Calida for just a little more before bedtime. The next day we went to the historical Castillo de Chapultepec with its breathtaking views of the city, exquisite artworks and stained glass windows. It is a real treasure. From there, we walked to the Museo Nacional de Antropología admiring Jorge Marín’s sculptures on the way. What a fantastic public art installation by the City that we so appreciated seeing. The Museo tour with our guide, Jacinta was an overview of what is “the best” of this expansive museum.

Later, we had comida at Chef Jair Téllez’s MeroTero where we sat at one long table and had an excellent meal. And to end our journey, we had cena at Chef Jorge Vallejo’s Quintonil in Polanco. It was a spectacular finish to a wonderful week in Mexico City.
