If you’re like us and dreaming of warm, sun kissed skin and crystal blue waters while the rest of the southern hemisphere FREEZES – then we thought you might like to know where the go-to place is to eat when your in sunny Mexico next. Just in case you happen to find yourself there, as we just might.
Hartwood is a farm to table, 100% solar powered restaurant where all meals are created by hand. That means absolutely no electrical appliances. Have you ever? Hartwood is all about getting back to the basics, using slow roasting and open fire cooking to prepare meals for diners.
Located on the ‘jungle side’ of Tulum’s beach road, this open air restaurant has a menu that changes daily and uses only the freshest local produce available – of course. Operated by chef Eric Werner of Brooklyn’s Vinegar Hill House and the Peasant in Manhattan, Hartwood is the perfect blend of rustic nature with elegant haute cuisine dining … in a Mexican kind of way.
And if you’re there between October 29 and November 4th 2013, you can learn to cook authentic, farm to table Mexican cuisine yourself. Eric Werner and chef Claudia Perez Rivas from Cetli will show you the ropes in the kitchen and staying at at Casa de las Olas will ensure a truly sustainable design experience.
