Máximo Bistrot Local

I – and some of my more intelligent boyfriends – have long known that the way to my heart is through my stomach. So when I found myself wandering down the Calle Tonalá in Mexico City’s trendy Colonia Roma neighbourhood and stumbling across Máximo Bistrot Local, it was love at first sight / bite! Everything about this little restaurant is perfect: cool yet cosy atmosphere, fun people and most importantly the most delicious food (and great selection of wines) I have had in quite a while. Which coming from a New York girl is saying quite a lot!

Fairly new to the Mexico City culinary scene, Máximo is already the talk of all the gastros in town. A daily changing menu offers up a selection of market fresh ingredients with a touch of Mexico thrown in. Think steamed trout with nut butter, a fanstatic Mexican version of beef carpaccio and many others more. I knew my love for Máximo was serious by the time I had fought off my dinner companion over the (supposedly shared) chocolate crème brûlée. Possibly the most divine dessert I have had the pleasure of eating in some time, and most certainly a very good thing that I do not live close by, for fear that it would transform into my breakfast, lunch and dinner as well.

Máximo, my favourite Mexican amor!
