Hotel Matilda is setting the table for the ultimate ‘Supper Club’ showcasing the culinary brilliance of three of Mexico’s top chefs.

Held on Friday, Feb. 15, 2013, the first Supper Club of 2013 promises to be the epicurean event of the year.  Join fellow bon vivantes for a multi-course feast and wine pairing in Hotel Matilda’s Moxi Restaurant – sure to dazzle food lovers and gourmands alike.

Three leading chefs collaborating on the menu include:

Chef Enrique OlveraEnrique Olvera:  The operator of Moxi Restaurant is widely recognized as Mexico’s leading chef and one of the best in the world. A recipient of numerous culinary awards and kudos, his Mexico City restaurant, Pujol, is #36 on the San Pellegrino list of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants. “With Chef Olvera preparing his evolved and innovative Mexican cuisine, Moxi is now a must-try restaurant among foodies and gourmands,” said Hotel Matilda Director Bruce James. “The menu has a Mexican soul but an international palate, with flavors, textures, combinations and presentations that are subtly familiar yet exuberantly original.”

Guillermo Gonzalez BeristainGuillermo González Beristáin:  After garnering extensive experience internationally, including with Michelin-starred restaurants in France and Spain, he returned to Mexico and opened elegant Pangea. This highly acclaimed Monterrey restaurant serves fine Mexican cuisine enhanced with French-Mediterranean touches.

Diego Hernández Velasco Baquedano: Named one of the most promising chefs of 2011 by Travel + Leisure, his wide range of experience includes stints at both Pujol and Pangea. At Corazon de Tierra (Heart of the Earth), his celebrated restaurant in Baja’s Guadalupe Valley, the ingredient comes first before all and above all.  The three culinary masters are developing a surprise menu for the evening. The dinner will start at 7:00 p.m. The cost per person is 1,800 pesos, or about $142.  Seating is limited to 100 persons.
