Piedra de Sal at Mexico City

In Architecture & Design by Isabella Moreno

The architecturally beautiful Piedra de Sal of Paseo de la Reforma is the first commercial project from the renowned office of VGZ Arquitectura. This restaurant not only features a beautiful design but its menu, designed by chef José Manuel Baños, stands out for its varieties of excellent fish and seafood.

What the architects say about Piedra de Sal: “It was a major challenge to remodel this restaurant in a difficult corner of Paseo de la Reforma. The space has an irregular shape and it is a first floor. The entrance was the main focus and we wanted to open ourselves to Reforma; we looked for an access that invites the clients to go up by foot making over a wooden box all assembled and then discover a large terrace covered with a wooden pergola. The space opens out onto the trees of the street and the sky. It is a monochromatic project, including materials in shades of gray and wood leaving the central bar the important element with a brass design. Everything was designed and manufactured specially for the restaurant from the concrete floor in shades of gray, to the bejuco ceiling in the eye of partridge, always seeking to generate a fresh and welcoming atmosphere. On the roof we generated a very simple terrace where you can see views of the city and the restaurant.”

In a short time it has become one of the favorite places for its impeccable 360-degree presentation: the service, the adequacy of the space and the delicious food. Do not stop visiting this amazing spot!
