- SOLD OUT

Join Chef Rene Ortiz and Pastry Chef Laura Sawicki for an intimate five-course dinner in the historic underground flour-house at La Condesa. A native Texan, born in Houston and raised in San Antonio, Chef Ortiz spent the last two decades traveling the world cultivating his international culinary skills. His
resume includes positions in Vancouver, Western Europe, and New York, including La Esquina,
which remains one of the city's most coveted reservations. At La Condesa, which was nominated for a 2010 James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant in the Country, Ortiz showcases bold flavors
and vibrant colors of modern regional Mexican cuisines.

For pastry chef Laura Sawicki, food isn't merely a passion — it is an obsession. With a culinary heritage that ranges from her Argentine roots to her formative years in some of the finest kitchens in the Northeast, food is the undertone to nearly every facet of Laura's life. As for her desserts, her garden-friendly savory-meets-sweet approach is as stunning to the eyes as it is to the palate.
