Quick Reviews are short peeks at restaurants in Colombia
One of the first Colombian chefs to become a celebrity, Harry Sasson headed up in the mid-1990s what has become a fine dining boom in Bogota.
His restaurant is set in a National Heritage mansion with a Tudor look. It’s just a stone’s throw from Zona G, one of the most outstanding gastronomic scenes in the city. This restaurant is where heads of state, national and international artists, and famous musicians go for unforgettable meals.
The menu isn’t just about Colombian food. You’ll find Asian touches mixed in with Colombian ingredients, so you’ll find dishes done on a Japanese robata grill as well as salads with hearts of palm from Putumayo, the south of the country.
From the elegant inside dining to the bright, airy and modern atrium outside, Harry knows how to set the scene for an outstanding meal. Upstairs, high ceilings drip with elegant chandeliers over a long bar. Couches are grouped for intimate conversation over cocktails. The chef’s table, tucked away behind the thick wood doors of a private room, promises a tasting experience to remember.
We’re not surprised to find that Harry comes in at number 24 on the Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants list.
