Spanish cuisine lands in Mexico with Seedwood
Hand in hand with chef Manuel Vitoria, Spanish Mediterranean cuisine makes its way across the pond to land in Mexico. Near the iconic Molino del Rey building – former official residence of the president of Mexico – we find the AjoBlanco restaurant.
A place where you can enjoy the most deeply rooted dishes of Spanish gastronomy which “does not mean making concessions in the quality and variety of the product. It is about taking care of tradition and honesty to always surprise our customers”, as Vitoria explains.
In each dish, the oldest recipe is combined with Mexican culture. The union of two countries which allows maximum exploitation of creativity and cooking talent to turn AjoBlanco into a renowned restaurant.
Starwood | AjoBlanco Restaurant
The connection between Spain and Mexico is not only found in the food; the interior design also goes with it. Aurelio Vázquez, from the DIN Interiorismo studio, has been responsible for translating this into design and decoration.
So this professional has chosen to combine Mediterranean ideas and colors such as blue and white with our ceramic wood to represent the most mountainous part. Specifically, he has chosen Ice Tanzania Wine (45 cm x 120 cm) and Noa Tanzania Wine (59.6 cm x 59.6 cm), two wall tile decorations that are totally typical of our brand.
The first of them has been installed on the facade as a welcome card, while Noa has been installed at the entrance and inside. The central wall of the restaurant (two storeys) is covered with this decoration with the aim of focusing attention. Its relief design and diamond pattern bring dynamism, a much-needed aspect when we talk about dimensions as large as this wall.
Starwood | Mediterranean Sea
All this combined with blue furniture to give a wink to the sea. In addition, there are several rooms in which the walls have been painted in this color and a Seedwood floor has been used again to combine.
The rest of Porcelanosa Grupo firms have also taken part in this project. Krion gives shape to the bars and the worktops, while Noken has provided the taps and sanitary equipment for the toilets, where the Ice decor has also been used as a general wall covering. Its rough, horizontal lines make this space more enveloping and enhance the feeling of width.
