Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico - A very divergent blend of excellent food and restaurants makes New York City a superb culinary destination. Many different ethnic groups settled in the city and have contributed to the overall food variety, making it the most diverse restaurant city in the world.
In Mexico, Puerto Vallarta is second only to Mexico City as a world-class culinary destination, and every year during November it showcases some of the world's best chefs during the Festival Gourmet. 2014 marks the 20th year of this gastronomical celebration that attracts visitors from all over Mexico, the United States and Canada.
The restaurant's Chef's Theme Night Dinner, entitled "New York, New York," will feature the iconic foods of New York City and be served on Tuesday, November 18, 2014, starting at 8 pm. This is one Festival Gourmet event that you do not want to miss!
The evening includes a six-course gourmet meal with wine pairings for each course and live music priced at $1200 pesos per person. Reservations are a must because this event always sells out, so call the restaurant at (322) 223-0760 to secure your table.
"The chefs at Kaiser Maximilian and I have reconfigured classic New York recipes to work with the products available in Puerto Vallarta," says Chris. "Many of the old recipes have heavy ingredients, so we have lightened up the fare and retained the great flavors."
Kaiser Maximilian Owner/Chef Andreas Rupprechter, Executive Chef Juan Carlos Palomera, and Guest Chef Chris Bradley have developed a spectacular menu for the theme night and its 6 courses, which include:
• Salmon Pastrami with potato latke, beets, red onions and cucumbers
• Waldorf Salad with chicory, apples, celery and grapes tossed in honey-walnut vinaigrette
• Manhattan Clam Chowder with gnocchi, bacon and smoked tomato
