Dine Under the Stars in Mexico's Wine Country
It's not everyday you get to dine on a star chef's own ranch, but that's exactly what you'll find at Finca Altozano in Valle de Guadalupe, Baja. Javier Plascencia, the Tijuana born chef credited with revitalizing the city's dining scene, opened the all al fresco restaurant on his family’s ranch in 2012. The best dishes are the ones done on the grill like charred octopus with cilantro, peanuts and soy sauce, and a mouthwatering corn cake dessert with a hint of smokiness. Plascencia has big plans for the property and is hoping to open an Inn and cooking school later this year.
