Chef Alejandro Ruiz, who learned the secrets of Oaxacan cuisine from his mother, creates simple and traditional yet sophisticated dishes that are typical of the region. His cuisine is refreshingly honest yet bursting with unique color combinations and striking flavors. In 2014, his dining room in the Casa Oaxaca Hotel was named to the prestigious San Pellegrino list of the 50 Best Restaurants of Latin America.
Chef Enrique Olvera has enjoyed international recognition for his celebrated Mexico City restaurant, Pujol, which is rated #16 on the San Pellegrino list of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants, and more recently for his first New York establishment, Cosme. Chef Olvera evolves time-honored Mexican culinary traditions with the latest cooking techniques, unexpected ingredient combinations and unique artistic presentations. He brought this culinary philosophy to Moxi to design a menu that is a reflection of the culture of today’s San Miguel de Allende. “Our concept unites the sophisticated and cosmopolitan scene in this historic colonial town with traditional dishes that are pure and honest,” explained Chef Olvera.
