The creative team behind the popular Williamsburg restaurant Mesa Coyoacan, Ivan Garcia (Chef), Gerardo Zabaleta, and Jorge Boetto open their newest venture Zona Rosa. Like the name Coyoacan, Zona Rosa is also a neighborhood in Mexico City. The restaurant pays homage to the area's history during the 1950's, 60's and 70's when its artistic revitalization, populated by intellectuals and the city's elite, attracted exclusive restaurants and clubs, giving the neighborhood its lively, bohemian reputation with a large gay population. It was during this time that the area received the name, Zona Rosa, from the artist, Jose Luis Cuevas, who commented that it was "too timid to be red but too frivolous to be white."
Zona Rosa was designed around this attitude. It's both respectful of the authentic, traditional cuisine of Mexico; everything is made "in-house", including tortillas and salsas, but presented in a fun, open, and relaxed atmosphere.
We look forward to seeing you at Zona Rosa.
