If you get a chance to take some time away from the hubbub of the city and are fortunate to get to Mexico’s Riviera Maya–on the Carribean or to the West Coast on the Pacific–in Zihuatanejo–, The Tides Restaurant in both these places offers cuisine that is worthy of some of the finest cuisine anywhere.
Last week, the Chefs from both these places were in NYC for a “Culinary Night” and invited a handful of Food Writers, etc. to a taste of this Mexican Gourmet Food. And the wine pairings were provided by Rivero Gonazlez , the family owned winery in Parras, Coahuila. Surprisingly delicious and of the highest quality. I have listed here some of the dishes served by the Executive Chefs at each Hotel.
