Sleek contemporary design at this luxurious restaurant hints at innovative presentations within. Le Chique offers guests a single menu that can reach 30 carefully prepared courses of gasp-inducing molecular cuisine that takes inspiration from numerous cultures as it focuses on adding a twist to the traditionally Mexican. Each bite-size dish might not be just as it seems, with margaritas made into spheres and street foods deconstructed into a gourmet experience. Despite its location in a Riviera Maya resort 20 minutes south of Cancún, the restaurant is open to the public with an advance reservation.
Le Chique Cancún
Tucked inside Azul Beach Resort Riviera Cancún, Le Chique is one of Latin America’s Top 50 Restaurants, a must for foodies on the Riviera Maya. Seasonal delicacies here are veritable objêts d’art and the restaurant itself is spectacular; natural woods and glass complement each painstakingly prepared delight. Chef Jonatán Gómez Luna favors regional ingredients and sustainable farming; his wine pairings are an extraordinary feast for both eyes and palate. Try the 14-course tasting menu, an explosion of flavors. Reservations recommended.
