Le Gourmet

Caracas, Venezuela

Le Gourmet is the culinary jewel in the crown of the five-star Tamanaco InterContinental hotel, located in the buzzy district of Las Mercedes. A spacious dining room boasts an understated elegance, allowing a menu built around carefully selected local ingredients to do the talking. French classics such as lobster bouillabaisse sit comfortably alongside nods to the national cuisine: witness amuse bouches such as fresh salmon ceviche with avocado and caviar foam, paper-thin cassava (yuca) chips, and cod in a pesto sauce. Everything is expertly prepared and presented with panache, and an internationally acclaimed wine cellar guarantees that a perfect pairing will be on hand for every plate. End on a high with something that shows off the pastry chef’s talents: a slice of flourless chocolate cake with pistachio sauce, perhaps, or an orange peel ice cream served over crumbled shortbread.
