A restaurant specialising in contemporary Mexican cookery, Le Chique offers an experience that is equal parts theatrical, multi-sensory and delicious. Set in the luxurious Azul Beach Resort in Cancún, it is a stone’s throw from beautiful white beaches and clear waters.
Chef Jonatan Gómez Luna’s tasting menu explores the different tastes of Mexico with the intent to ‘puzzle, amuse and amaze’ the diner. Cutting-edge and molecular techniques are employed by Le Chique’s 28-strong culinary team to deconstruct and transform traditional Mexican dishes into new creations. Cocktails are spherified, local bites are served from a hollowed-out book and a water mist surrounds the seafood dishes, but everything is done in pursuit of flavour. Among Le Chique’s signatures are beef tongue with black mole, Morelian gazpacho and Hamachi tarlet with ikura and chiles toreados.
