Famed Spanish chef José Andrés probably could have chosen any country to hang the shingle of his latest restaurant (his ever-growing empire consists of nearly two dozen restaurants at this point), but when the opportunity arose, he seized the chance to open J by José Andrés, his first restaurant outside the United States and its territories, in Mexico. The sprawling spot, located inside the W Mexico City, is a riot of color—all reds, oranges, and yellows—with lots of visual and decorative references to Spain and, in particular, Spanish bullfighting. The menu also harks back to the chef's country of birth, with tapas-style plates incorporating both Spanish techniques and ingredients, as well as Mexican ones. The two traditions collide beautifully in dishes such as Tortilla de Patatas New Güey con Flor de Calabaza, a Spanish-style tortilla (omelette-like egg dish) with potato foam and squash blossom, a distinctly Mexican ingredient. If you get bored waiting for your plates to be served, pop into the foosball salon for a quick game with friends or other patrons.
