Restaurateur Besim Kukaj strays from his Italian-accented portfolio (Cara Mia, Gallo Nero, Il Bastardo) with this colorful, Chelsea-set Mexican eatery. From the kitchen, find shareable appetizers such as shredded beef tacos, poached shrimp ceviche and a gluten-free salad built with cactus, grasshoppers, roasted corn and cipollini onions. For a larger bite, signature entrees range from plancha-sautéed Chilean sea bass to huitlacoche (corn truffle) enchiladas.
For Besim, Mexican cuisine has been raised to its highest culinary exponent. To explain a merger on the palate of every person is not easy, but it is a challenge that chef Angel has always had. The power to show New Yorkers traditional, artisanal and artistic recipes, with new concepts, innovative techniques, rich in color texture and flavor.
This is the result of an unstoppable evolution of high Mexican cuisine, with one essential element of the chef, whom seeks to rescue the authentic taste of local cuisine, and the European complement that generate this traditional taste covered by this abstract idea.
