DQM RECOMMENDATIONS / CENTRAL CENTRAL RESTAURANT
We always dream of traveling to somewhere in the world and disconnect ourselves from everyday life. Enjoy and be surprised by the small details. Live unique and unrepeatable experiences that make us happy. Who doesn’t have a crave to get out of the rut and find new places that allow us to have new and better experiences? This is how the Central Central Restaurant is, a special corner in Mexico City.
When entering Central Central you breathe the beauty of nature and tranquility. A Spanish restaurant with an amazing rustic decor that makes you remember the beauty of natural landscapes from northern Spain. Mexican architect Luis Felipe Castro was asked to give life to this place and to set it down to the smallest detail. A creative genius. Statues, chairs, tables and fireplaces from hidden places in Spain, Argentina and San Miguel de Allende, create a great mix that gives this place a magical and surprising space.
The location of the place is one of the secrets of the success of this restaurant. High in the Valley of Santa Fe and with spectacular views, you feel free, away from city stress and monstrous skyscrapers, not afraid of anything and forgetting the everyday world for a few hours. And we cannot deny our senses to experience new sensations and enjoy atmospheres that make us feel even better than at home.
Warmth and friendliness is what you get from the first minute you enter until you leave the restaurant. This is how you are greeted at the Central Central Restaurant. Elsa Barónnos is responsible and lets us know: “The treatment we offer is exactly the same that I would like to receive.” A woman who loves what she does, sees her restaurant as a family. Her children, the way she calls her team, is responsible for making all this happen.
Central Central is a place that reminds us that we have not seen everything and that our desire to live better and better experiences will not be ever satisfied, not while places like this continue to emerge. It can be classified as meats, seafood, but it’s much more than that:
BAR: Elegance and style is what defines the Central Central Bar. Among bricks and wood it is the coolest area of the site, set to the music of DJ Guillermo del valle, ‘El Sapo’ (http://www.mixcloud.com/memodelvalle/). A perfect way to start the pre-drinking and continue the party. There is a spacious living room with an elegant decor and a seafood bar / deli worthy of a museum. Capacity for 120-150 people.
TERRACE: The jewel on the crown. The panoramic terrace of the Central Central is a unique place in Mexico City. A ‘forest’ in the midst of civilization. The place is designed so that you can fall in love with the view of green canyons of Santa Fe. The table distribution and chairs make you feel like you dive into a fairy tale. A different place to celebrate your birthday.
CHAMPAGNE ROOM: The most mystical and trendy of Central Central. A lounge where you can organize cocktails for 60 people and host all kinds of private events. Enjoy a glass of champagne while you hear the crackling of burning wood in the fireplace, so you feel the warmth of this corner. A trip back in time where you can imagine being in a banquet room of a medieval castle. Daily 2 × 1 in all Champagne. (Smoking is allowed)
All menus are prepared by chef Edgar Silva, along with the participation of Luis Felipe Castro.
– Potato tortilla with jabugo ham, with a drink from the house (blend of Merlot, Syrah and Petite Verdot). The typical potato tortilla, genuinely Spanish. Nostalgia overcomes when you finish this tasty dish.
– Tuna Sashimi with crispy octopus and avocado with teriyaki sauce. Delicacy, taste and avant-garde. One of the most successful dishes.
