During a Tulum taxi ride, I’m grateful my eyes caught the women whose faces were made up so beautifully and funky. Quickly catching the name of the spot they stood outside of before it was out of sight. A divine moment of appreciating slow Tulum traffic.
After looking it up, the next night I decided on Art Beach Tulum (opened in October) for my special date night on the eve of my birthday. WOW! Art Beach far exceeded my palate desires as it’s truly “Where food and art emerge.” Making it the serendipitous and perfect experience for a grieving and healing heart.
Their dinner show was a serendipitous and memorable culinary experience from the moment I was welcomed at the door by handsome and smiling Nelson, to the beautiful beach breeze and night sky, to the sexy ambiance, to Candi @canndans taking attentive care of me at the bar, to the music by @dj_fildoc, and the additional entertainment. The beautiful harp player @valentinaharpist and dancers were captivating and came through with the sexy.
EVERY dish and hard to decide cocktail were eye-catching and euphorically delicious and satisfying. Candi did an exceptional job offering recommendations and passionately describing how to enjoy the meals. Kudos and a round of applause to culinary director Maximiliano Sola and the gastronomic eminence Martin Berasategui. Thank you Art Beach, Nelson, and Candi for an unforgettable and what felt like a special VIP birthday experience.
I delighted in the:
~TEPACHE SOUR – Bulleit Bourbon, Tepache, Lemon Juice, Egg White
~CREAMY MUSHROOM RAVIOLI – Foie Gras Soup, Iberian Ham
~GITANO – Tanqueray 10, St. Germain, Green Chartreuse
~SUD VIDE STRIPED SEA BASS – Asparagus Risotto, Seawood Cream, Kalamatas and Fennel Air
~CALIPSO – Havana Club Rum, Grand Marnier, Coconut, Vanilla
~LEMON ICE CREAM – Chocolate Crumble, Touch or Basil and Pea Pod
The next day while in a taxi, I once again passed Art Beach. To my surprise Nelson saw and recognized me and we both waved enthusiastically. I wished I’d gone back for seconds of his dreamy eyes. Oh, and for the delicious cuisine and cocktails too. The best to you Art Beach. I’m sure you’ll be one of my first stops on my next visit. Mmmmm… Bon Appetit! Cheers!
