Spotted on our designer friend Victoria Kirk‘s Instagram: Rosetta in Mexico City, the prettiest restaurant we’ve seen in a while. Owner Elena Reygadas studied in New York and London before returning home to open Rosetta in 2010; since then, she’s been named Latin America’s Best Female Chef (in 2014), earned a place on Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants list, and—the ultimate accolade—Alice Waters blurbed her new cookbook.
“The restaurant is in a beautiful old colonial building,” Victoria says, “and the interiors are enchanting. You really feel the feminine touch; the walls are covered in floral frescoes and there are plants everywhere, draped from the ceiling or tucked in corners. It’s all about foliage. The cuisine is an interesting fusion of Italian and Mexican and the design is a mix of eclectic elements. It all works somehow.”
