  Chef Ruben Monroy, who has degrees in graphic arts and interior design, selected and purchased all the furnishings and wide-ranging blend of traditional and contemporary Mexican arts and crafts that adorn the bright and lively new location during many trips throughout his native country.

He painted the restaurant himself, with a series of electric blue walls, decorated with colorful dots. “I decided to change the whole design of the restaurant with a blend of traditional to fun and funky items. I want people to come and get a taste of the new and old Mexico, and experience not just the food, but the culture, the colors and the spirit,” he said.

After he completed his studies in interior design and graphic arts, Monroy headed off for cooking school in Mexico City to become a chef. He creates all the recipes and does much of the cooking at the new location, his preference being for “more inventive cuisine.”

“I like everything to be perfect. When you are a designer, you are a perfectionist, but when you are a chef it’s even worse,” he said, with a laugh.
