San Miguel de Allende continues to stand out as an avant-garde destination: On the month of September a new concept house just a few steps from the cathedral emerged, designed with the great style of Luis Fabián Flores of Casa Armida.
From the moment you walk in, you are greeted by striking chandeliers and other retro elements, you walk down a corridor with a neon light installation and lounges dedicated to decoration (casa-armida.mx, with unique pieces selected by Flores); fashion with Colektiva HojaSanta, focused on Mexican design and pieces with handmade details (hojasantaboutique.com); and contemporary jewelry, with Elisheva & Constance, another 100% Mexican brand that works with glamorous crystals, natural stones, bronze, silver and gold ( elisheva-constance.com).
On the second floor of the house is Bovine, a stylish brasserie run by Australian chef Paul Bentley, who has made his talent and craft clear in Magno Brasserie de Guadalajara, and now associates with Bruce James, director of San Miguel’s super chic Hotel Matilda.
Bovine features its exclusive Suite Hästens, with an adjustable and hand-finished luxury bed that provides a perfect rest.
A fantastic grill menu was served afterwards, with a great technical mastery and flavors as sweet as stylish.
Among the dishes not to be missed are the juicy half-cooked chicken with burnt lemon, the braised rib with bacon, onion, radishes and carrot, and the tremendous Berkshire pork ribeye with fennel salt and Brussels sprouts.
Dinner was followed by a private Tequila tasting at Casa Dragones and then a crowded cocktail, to finalize the great inaugural event of Postal Code and Bovine.
