Mirazur, the three Michelin-starred restaurant by Argentinian chef Mauro Colagreco, has reopened its doors in France with a brand new nature-inspired menu
The past few years have been exceptional for Mirazur, achieving a plethora of awards and recognition for Mauro’s authentic, heartfelt cooking.
As well as 3 Michelin stars in January 2019, the restaurant claimed the coveted 50 Best World’s Best Restaurant spot a few months later. In a brave and bold step, Mauro is throwing caution to the wind and embracing an entirely new way of plating.
Unprecedented times bring an opportunity for change. The last few months’ imaginings have resulted in a new structure for Mirazur, introducing an ever-changing ‘Lunar Menu’, driven by the cycle of nature.
The restaurant, too, will adapt and change on a frequent basis. Whilst favourite wines will remain on the menu, interesting new varieties will also appear.
Often referred to as a gardener more than a chef, Mauro and his team have spent the last few months immersed in Mirazur’s hillside garden. The small paradise grows an extensive variety of fruit, vegetables, flowers and herbs (and also boasts the oldest avocado tree in France).
Mauro Colagreco’s desire to express the energy and enchantment of his past few months in the garden has led to a completely new thinking towards his menu and the dining experience at Mirazur.
Thus, Mirazur will now introduce the Lunar Menu. The regularly-changing menu will be divided into four separate offerings – Root, Leaf, Flower and Fruit – aligning with the cycle of the moon.
Whilst the dining room will represent the ever-changing menu in colour, layout and texture, plates will feature produce mainly selected from the Mirazur garden, with new dishes daily. Additionally, Mirazur will continue to use local seafood and support its local producers and farmers as much as possible.
Commenting Mauro said, “I am overjoyed to reopen the doors at Mirazur and welcome guests back to the restaurant. It has been a challenging time, but with the support of our guests, staff, producers, suppliers and partners we return with renewed energy and enthusiasm.
Our Lunar Menu creates an entirely new experience for guests, finally deeply connecting nature to the kitchen and ultimately the plate.”
