Mexico Lunch
Bailliage of Mexico D.F.
Mexico City, September 27, 2020
Tradition with a gourmet touch
" The menu combined the restaurant's renowned cuisine principally with Mexican wines "

La Cantina Palacio is in Sante Fe, one of Mexico City's major business districts, located in the west part of the city. In late September a lucky group of members enjoyed a wonderful lunch there.

Inspired by a traditional Mexican cantina, the restaurant offers its guests a menu focused on Mexican and Spanish gastronomy with contemporary touches. La Cantina Palacio exclusively offers a selection of dishes inspired by recipes from the traditional cuisine of La Marquesa and ingredients grown in this area of the road to Toluca.

After a reception featuring Champagne Moët & Chandon Brut Imperial the party enjoyed a delightful menu prepared by Chef Guillermo Martínez and his team.
