First Look: Lunario rises over Valle de Guadalupe
One of Valle de Guadalupe’s most anticipated restaurant openings for 2019 is prepping to welcome diners very soon. The stunning Lunario restaurant, inspired by the moon’s phases, is an extension to a Valle-favorite; Traslomita lead by the Sonorense chef Sheyla Alvarado. Set within the Lomita winery grounds, the greenhouse-like restaurant is sure to become a top Valle destination.
We sat with the Lomita family and chef Alvarado during a special preview night, to learn all about Lunario and what the kitchen has been preparing.
During the 8-course preview menu, Alvarado served more elaborate dishes compared to Traslomita, which will remain and maintain its campestre setting. Lunario will offer 4, 6, and 8-course menus with optional pairings of Lomita and Finca La Carrodilla’s wines. Dishes like the Amaebi (spot prawns) adobado with cucumber and citrus, or the smoked duck and mole will become iconic dishes of the restaurant. Like a true to Valle restaurant, seasonal menus will rotate to honor the land.
With Casa Duhagón’s vision, the space is filled with exquisite colors, textures, and shapes that blend seamlessly with the Valle rustic landscape. With a capacity for around 40-50 diners, Lunario becomes a more intimate experience in contrast with Traslomita.
Lomita continues to tell the Valle de Guadalupe story with Lunario.
