La Table Krug: An Exclusive French Restaurant in Mexico City
If you’re keen on exclusive experiences, then you must make a reservation at La Table Krug. This collaboration between The St. Regis Mexico City and Moët Hennessy Mexico is the most unique French-with-a-Mexican-flair epicurean journey you’ll find.
Bernard de Villèle, General Director of The St. Regis Mexico City, describes La Table Krug as “the smallest and most intimate French restaurant in Mexico, where guests will be immersed in a culinary experience like no other.” Between the den-like antechamber, gorgeous Carrara marble table that can be configured as 3 tables for 4 or one large table for 12, commissioned dishware, and the woodsy floral arrangements, dining at La Table Krug is more like attending a private party at an estate than taking a meal in a restaurant.
Executive Chef Sylvain Desbois came to La Table Krug in February 2015, bringing with him over a decade of experience. His 11-course menu is served to no more than 12 guests at a time in this cozy, classy setting. Dishes may include New Zealand lamb, wagyu beef, Sologne caviar, Kumamoto oysters, spider crab, and more; the menu changes weekly, so it will be fresh and exciting every time you visit.
At a place like La Table Krug, you’d expect some fabulous wine, and you won’t be disappointed. The courses are perfectly paired, including 3 glasses of Krug (Krug Grand Cuveé / Krug Rosé / Krug Vintage 2000). In fact, La Table Krug is the only place in Mexico where you can obtain Krug Vintage 2000 (95/100 Wine Spectator).
The star of this affair is dessert. Each diner is presented with a tray containing 3 bowls of dry ice and greens; staff then pours water over the dry ice to create a fog that creeps across the table. The pièce de résistance: platters with scoops of cassis sorbet, raspberry meringue, almond and caramel nougatine, and creamy white chocolate encased in a chocolate sphere, placed upon the trays, instantly assimilated into the misty tablescape for a dreamy effect. Theatrical? Yes, but a fitting finale for the evening.
