J&G Grill – St Regis Mexico City

I have dined here on a number of occasions and it has quickly become one of my favourites in Mexico City – fondly remember a great dinner with my friend Fabio Nonato when it just opened; lunch with my mate from Banamex Pepe and the list goes on including a great evening recently with GM Rui Reis and CEOS from Accenture; Unilever, Sodexho, Brasken all Brasilians based in Mexico and their better halves – the deco, setting, the terrace overlooking the Paseo de la Reforma, a good smokers section, cool music and what thrills me, the Chefs table by Chef Maycoll along with the great cuisine makes this a must for anyone visting Mexico City. Off a very produce driven menu with simple but perfectly cooked dishes my favourites are the Pizzaa de Aguacate with Avocado, Jalapeño, Cilantro and lemon – delicious and one I have tried at home.The differents options off the Parilla are all great while I generally go for the Prime NY Strip with a black pepper sauce.
