Mexico Dinner
Bailliage of Cozumel Quintana Roo
Cozumel, March 7, 2019
At Sal de Mar Restaurant

The Bailliage held its first event of the year at the Sal de Mar Restaurant which, even with its modern design, still preserves rustic touches of the architecture of the old Cozumel.

For the first time since the Bailliage’s foundation the attendees included members, couples and guests, a practice that will continue in future activities.

Accordingly, 32 people had this wonderful experience that included an official picture, dinner and the recognition of service personnel.

The menu was a combination of seafood for the first four courses, followed by two beef dishes, finishing with a brioche-based dessert with chocolate ganache. The wines included Italian rosé, Mexican Chardonnay, Spanish Albariño, finishing with a fine Mexican Cabernet Sauvignon.
