Slowly, ever so slowly, diplomatic social life is retaking shape in Mexico, despite the recent third wave of covid-19 and social distancing practices that limit the number of people who can congregate at any public meal.

One pleasant example of this social rebirth was a petit tête-à-tête déjeuner of foreign diplomats and their friends at the Almara Mexi-terranean restaurant inside Grupo Brisas’ Galleria Plaza Hotel in Mexico City’s Colonia Juárez on Thursday, July 29.

Most of the ladies had not seen each other for more than a year due to covid lockdowns and restrictions imposed by their own embassies.

But Grupo Brisas’ executive chef Guy Santoro prepared a special meal for the sixsome that included an exclusive watermelon-based cocktail created for the occasion (alcohol optional), a tuna tartare fillet, a to-die-for cream of corn chowder with huitlacoche, slow braised beef with glazed veggies in red wine and, as a crowning glory, a Grand Marnier soufflé, all served in full accordance with current sanitary regulations to avoid contagion.

Certainly a great way to jumpstart social life again in Mexico City.
