The St. Regis Mexico City debuted a new and renovated culinary experience at its signature Diana Restaurant. Diana’s new menu by chef de cuisine Fernando Sanchez offers 100 percent Mexican pairings with a superb wine list.
Inspired by the techniques, ingredients and unique flavors of Central Mexico, the new menu offers creative interpretations of classic dishes by utilizing the freshest local products available. The new carte du jour highlights the country's culinary legacy and the richness of Mexican wines.
“Mexican cuisine is inspiring travelers to discover our fascinating country. The new Diana menu presents classic recipes with a contemporary approach and locally sourced ingredients, which highlight the rich flavors, aromas and textures of our cuisine,” Sanchez said. "They are daring dishes meant to surprise our guests. In my kitchen, I make an effort to celebrate the source of the ingredients by supporting the local producers, as they are a fundamental part of the creative process and the final dish."
Located on the third floor of the hotel, the gastronomic experience will consist of bone marrow sopes, jicama aguachile, octopus chimole, suadero raviolis, and beef cheek barbacoa. The sweets selection includes anise cookies, rompope pudding with morelianas ice cream, capirotada (Mexican bread pudding featuring layered nuts), and the traditional cocada (coconut candy).
Focused on promoting the growth of the wine culture in Mexico, Diana’s renovation includes a wine cellar filled with labels produced 100 percent in Mexico. The labels represent seven different states of the country and highlight Baja California, Coahuila and Chihuahua, the most important wine regions in Mexico.
Capable of hosting 100 patrons, Diana offers a variety of different environments and experiences. The terrace, with a new and seductive design, allows gastronomic lovers to enjoy beautiful sunsets with views of Chapultepec Castle, the Angel of Independence and La Diana Cazadora. In the cozy and warm interior main hall, patrons can admire the new wine cellar and experience unique pairings presented by sommelier Oscar Nicanor.
