BLVD DE LA LUZ 777 / JARDINES DEL PEDREGAL
Located in the heart of Pedregal, Sud 777 is a restaurant that honors the tradition of a neighborhood designed by prominent urban planners and architects. Since its opening in 2008, it has been part of the culinary offerings of southern Mexico City due to the gastronomic proposal of chef Edgar Núñez who has positioned himself worldwide for his prodigious technique and his Mexican vegetable cuisine. He has obtained a position on the Latin America's' 50 Best Restaurants list for the last four consecutive years.
Today, the restaurant offers a tasting menu that changes according to the best ingredients offered by the season —a large part comes from the restaurant's' gardens. Visitors can also enjoy an experience in the terrace lounge to try the cocktail or a glass of wine and take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city.
CHEF EDGAR NUÑEZ
From an early age, chef Edgar Núñez developed a taste for vegetables by inheritance from his mother, since then, that culinary inclination has become a guiding principle of his gastronomic proposal, which he calls Mexican vegetable cuisine. At the same time, he is a chef who seeks to explore the infinite possibilities offered by a good product, from the one he gets in the garden of his restaurant and the Xochimilco chinampas to the fish and shellfish from other Mexican regions.
The visitor can explore his visions around the kitchen in the restaurants of which he is co-owner chef. SUD 777 is his vision of fine dining, which has placed him in the 17th position of the Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants list and in the 58 th position of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list. He is also the chef co-owner of Comedor Jacinta, a Mexican dining room with a casual proposal that is much more informal with dishes from his childhood and his interpretation of how he sees Mexican cuisine today.
The chef is a member of ACADEMIE CULINAIRE DE FRANCE and the Colectivo Mexicano de Cocina AC.
