French-trained Irish chef Darren Walsh – ex-Papillon, NYC – heads up fine-dining Guadalajara hotspot Lula Bistro, the 2011 winner of Mexico’s Distinción Bohemia, in recognition of its contribution to the region’s cuisine. Renowned for his six-, eight- and 12-course tasting menus – loved by gourmands and Instagrammers alike – Walsh uses seasonally led local ingredients to prepare exquisitely plated French-Mexican showstoppers. In a chic, pastel-hued dining room with soaring ceilings, the likes of beef filet, duck confit and octopus are followed by note-perfect desserts such as a laurel cappuccino and chocolate fondant with blue cheese, while the Mexican sparkling wine flows.
