Leave it to the daughter of a well-respected French restaurant critic to take the torch from her father. A new guide, dubbed Best Restaurants Colombia, has been released by Sophia Brault, the 25-year old daughter of writer Stephen Brault, who has created similar guides for cities across the United States including Miami, San Francisco, Atlanta, Chicago, and New York. Learning from her father’s more than 30 years’ worth of writing about the best restaurants around the world, Brault combined her love for life in Colombia and her passion for food in the country’s first-ever comprehensive guide that spans Bogotá, Medellín, Cali, Cartagena, and Santa Marta.

Last Friday, while on a visit to surprise Julio César Távara Siancas, the internet sensation who has become known as the Ninja of the Limes, Peruvian chef Gastón Acurio’s truck was robbed as he was giving a ceviche cart to the young chef so he might expand his ceviche offerings. Just five meters away, a number of ‘seasoned thieves’ managed to rob all of the contents of Acurio’s truck and flee without ever being noticed. Aside from a post released on Saturday via Facebook, the chef has refrained from all comments regarding the incident.

Two months ago, the Belo Horizonte-based microbrewery Backer completed a huge project: a 4,000 square meter space dedicated to receive visitors and give them a complete beer experience. With an average 2,500 visitors a month, it’s safe to say Backer’s new beer park is off to a great start.

We’re now in a moment of record consumption of fish in the history of humanity, which has made it more important than ever to support artisan fisherman and their traditional practices which give respect to the sea and it’s ecosystem. This Saturday, January 24, more than just a lunch, the team behind Slow Food Punta del Diablo invites us to spend an afternoon together with these fishermen to take care of the beach, at Playa de los Pescadores, in Punta del Diablo. Invited guests to the event will include chef Laura Rosano, national representative of Slow Food Uruguay, and Rodrigo Garcia Pingaro, representative of the Organization of Conservation of Cetaceans, a promoter of the declaration of the entire marine economic zone as a sanctuary for whales and dolphins.

Are These The 101 Best Restaurants In Latin America? (ES)

By Patrick Hieger

[The Daily Meal]

For the second year in a row, U.S.-based catch-all food site The Daily Meal has compiled their list of the 101 best restaurants in Latin America and the Caribbean. Apparently compiled after extensive research with industry experts, local food guides, and a lot of eating around 28 different countries, the list includes everything from World’s 50 Best members like D.O.M. and Pujol, to restaurants you won’t hear much about like Eric Ripert’s Blue in Grand Cayman and a few beachside restaurants, just because. “As we believe that a beachside seafood shack can be just as good, in its own way, as a sleek Michelin-quality establishment, we included restaurants of all types and size, excluding, sometimes reluctantly, food stalls and street stands (for instance, we did not consider one of our favorite dispensers of fresh Mexican seafood, Mariscos La Guerrerense in Ensenada).”
