A Glimpse into the Culinary Journey that is Le Chique

Pack your appetite, leave your expectations

Avant-garde cuisine has long had a place in famed food cities and restaurants around the world like San Francisco, Chicago and London. And for the first time, Azul Beach Resort Sensatori Mexico located in the heart of the Riviera Maya is now home to an epicurean concept unlike any other – Le Chique Restaurant. 

Before we dish culinary details, you should know that Azul Beach Resort Sensatori Mexico is a Karisma Gourmet Inclusive resort located on the sugary white sands in Riviera Maya, Mexico. Suites come fully appointed with luxe amenities like an in-room Jacuzzi, aromatherapy scent menus and 24 hour room service. 

The property also boasts 6 swimming pools, a world class spa, and 15 restaurants and bars. Which brings us to Le Chique!

Created by Chef Jonatan Gomez-Luna, Le Chique is an eatery where guests can experience an 8, 16 or 22-course tasting menu designed to put the five senses to use. From a mix of colors and textures to a combination of plant-based, seafood and meats, each offering is served up in a unique way to eat it with a presentation 

to match. Think edible plastic bags, smoky dry ice and a wooden book as your plate. You may read some of the menu items and wonder what in the world it is, but trust us- the surprise brings quite the delight. Personally, we think it’s the perfect Instagram Story. 

The menu is refreshed seasonally, introducing new ingredients, flavors and items to complement current surroundings. The recent selection of dishes is largely inspired by Mexico’s cuisine, making its way from Northern Mexico with elements like Huichol and Paloma, and working its way down to the South of the country with flavors like Pozole and Mole. While the dishes change seasonally, some signature items can constantly be found including the Smoked Quail Egg, Between Flowers & Fruits among others.  Some of our favorites have included the tangerine margarita, beef mole and cochinita brioche. Oh, and did we mention you can opt for a wine or fresh juice pairing with your dinner? YAS!

If you get a chance, dining Le Chique can be an unforgettable experience for foodies of all kinds, for a fraction of the cost of other avant-garde restaurants. Guests staying at Azul Beach Resort Sensatori Mexico can also take advantage of the in-house eatery with discounted rates. And luckily for you, the Azul Beachy Fall promotion means up to 40% off rates at the hotel.
