In Dine, Puerto Vallarta by Suzanne Koch

Mexico’s “Beyond All-Inclusive, Beyond All Compare” Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit ups the ante for foodie travelers with new menu additions from around the globe to its award-winning restaurants. See below for the worldly additions to its exquisite culinary offerings.

Frida: The resort’s AAA Four Diamond gourmet Mexican restaurant, named after the famed Frida Kahlo is serving up new dishes that highlight a variety of Mexican cuisine found in the north, south and central regions of Mexico. Using unusual, local ingredients like moles, chapulines (grasshoppers), huazontles (native herb) and more, the dishes provide new and adventurous tastes for guests. Try out the new Red Snapper dish which features an avocado crust and fried garlic slices, served over sautéed zucchini in a traditional chapuline sauce.

Lucca: Another AAA Four Diamond restaurant at the resort is offering savory Italian-Mediterranean cuisine inspired by regions like Verona, Toscana and Provenza. The romantic and elegant restaurant is plating up new offerings like Risotto alla Tutto Mare, Salmon alla Caputo and Affettato di Tono Marinata. The new Cannelloni Ripieno di Ricotta Gamberoni e Spinaci is a tempting plate of pasta shell filled with ricotta cheese, shrimp and spinach served in a rustic tomato sauce.

Azul: For those looking for a more casual atmosphere amid ocean views, visit Azul, where a new buffet and a la carte menu is serving up a blend of Mexican and Asian cuisine. New dishes include a Coriander crusted seared Ahi Tuna, Azul-styled Greek salad, sushi Sake maki and a smoked salmon trilogy marinated with Mediterranean lemon and masago with cucumber, avocado, rice and wakame.
