MEXICO ISSUE 113 May 2008

Contramar Mexico City take offline

Star restaurateur Gabriela Cámara's 'beach food' shack in Colonia Roma is casually decorated to remind diners of a palm-thatched palapa.

However, the menu is much more refined than what would normally be expected. The signature tuna-sashimi tostadas are served with chipotle sauce and braised leeks - a sumptuous favourite! Anyone travelling to Mexico City will find authentic Mexican seafood flavour at Contramar.

Situated in the hip European-style Roma area, the restaurant is centrally located between trendy Polanco and the touristy Centro Histórico.
