Quintonil is run by talented chef Jorge Vallejo. He is a disciple of Enrique Olvera, having worked in Pujol before he struck out on his own; he has since become a star chef in his own right. His menu is cutting edge and utilizes local ingredients both exotic and less so. He strives to take home-style flavors to a higher level. The “S. Pellegrino 50 best” list in which Quintonil holds 12th place describes it as such: “A gastronomic tour of Mexico is on offer at this boundary-pushing restaurant whose star is very much in the ascendancy.” Vallejo’s cooking reminds us that simplicity and hospitality don’t have to be at odds in haute cuisine. An example - a “catch of the day” presents whatever is fresh at the fish market with a mildly fragrant chile guajillo puree, nutty, sweet ayocote beans and pineapple pico de gallo, bringing together the very best the market has to offer in an astute, refined combination. Or roast pork in cold avocado sauce with chicatanas (flying ants), grilled onions and fava bean puree, combines pre-Hispanic with European ingredients to form an exciting new dish. Quintonil’s menu will be sure to dazzle.
