Listen up! At Jules Gahide’s Amigo, the cocktails flow freely, so the evening can go on until very late, with disco, techno and house vibes – especially on the weekends! His signature style? Dishes featuring Mexican and Middle Eastern flavors: spicy burnt feta, smoked celeriac, cacao-miso sauce and smoked apple; crispy zander fried in a curly kale leaf quenched in a lemon dashi broth; and a lovely surprise via Amigo’s signature dish, an orgasmic portobello mushroom tataki with miso sauce; before some matcha ganache, white chocolate, pear and pistachio crumble for a sweet finish. // Bobbi Rossi
