As we’ve mentioned, Tulum is blessed with a rich and diverse assortment of dining possibilities, but despite the many fine choices, I have to say the quality of the dining experience right at Coqui Coqui made it difficult to want to eat anywhere else!

Here, Coqui’s esteemed chef, Sergio Granados, brings an extensive knowledge of the many diverse regional foods of Mexico to bear in creating his own unique, marvelously Mexican, haute cuisine. Dinner at Coqui is an intimate affair, and guests can actually meet with Granados to discuss their meal. One does have the the option to enjoy a set menu, but if one is craving something in particular, Granados will tailor a dinner in response, (even going so far as to select a superb pairing of wines and tequilas!).

For one unforgettable meal, McBee and I proposed a tropical Mexican seafood based dinner. Chef Granadas, in turn, offered up the most spectacular feast of shrimp cooked with a hibiscus flower reduction, followed by lobster with a variation on a mole sauce, and for dessert, we enjoyed grilled pineapple, guava and mango. Needless to say we dined at Coqui Coqui several times during our blissful stay.

On my way to dinner, I’ve dressed up a bit to celebrate Sergio Granados’ culinary genius. I’m sporting a Tom Ford pink silk “Spencer” jacket and paisley brown and pink cotton shirt, Paul Stuart brown and pink ribbon belt, Tom Ford “Nicolo sunglasses as a hair band, Charvet Paris brown silk pocket square, Uniglo white Japanese denim jeans, vintage Rolex Oyster Perpetual watch, and my fragrance is the impossibly fresh Coqui Coqui – Orange Blossom cologne.

    This picture evokes a feeling of the what the great Gatsby stranded on a desert island would look like. But of course anywhere you were going wouldn’t be anything less than decadent.

    Mexican Haute Cuisine Featuring Seafood!
    I salivate at the thought…
    I wonder if Rick Bayless in Chicago has heard about this. I am sure if he did we would see some form of this cuisine in his restaurants in Chicago. I think Tulum is going on the list!

    Safe Travels,

    Hello jon k,

    I so enjoy your comments and feed back!

    Yes we could play Gilligan’s Island- which character are you?

    I think I am a mix of Thursten Howell III , Lovey and Ginger.



  8. James Andrew says:

    Dear Eric,

    As you might already know I am totally fascinated by Gatsby!

    SO I so adore your description and rather fabulous comparison- Thank You!

    I can’t wait to connect with you in Chicago and have you show me all the chicest places.

    Tulum is a must visit- let me know when you are going and I will give you a list of all the best places.
