Where To Eat And Drink: Nolita, Bogotá

A single offer often starts with a name, and in this case the name is Nolita, which is basically a contraction of “North Little Italy”, an upscale New York neighborhood. With a name and a purpose, Nolita opened just over a year ago.  Located in Carrera 13 # 85-25 in Bogotá, the restaurant is soberly disguised with a white veranda and thick plants, but only until you reach the entrance hall and fantasy reveals itself with insolence.

The minute you walk in, you become a character. You can’t help but feel like Peter Sellers in The Party or Joan P. Harris in Mad Men, since the setting makes it so natural.  The story of Nolita is framed on late fifties / early sixties scenery, inspired by the Caracas of the time and the current New York vibe. Antique pieces, personal photographs hanging on the walls, ulpholstered furniture and the juxtaposition of organic and geometric shapes live together in harmony.

The direction of the experience of this place is divided by duos in theory, but multiplied by four in practice. Paul Launois and Ana Belén Mayester are the heads of the kitchen and Horacio López and Pedro Emilio Coll are in charge of everything related to design. “We end up participating on everything related to the restaurant. Every detail is the result of our vision as a team,” Paul confesses.

Nolita’s menu is based on Mediterranean dishes made with local products found in the Pacific and Caribbean coasts.  The most popular requests from the clients are the pepper red tuna stake, the grilled octopus, and the lamb stew with green lemons. For dessert, clients love just about everything provided by the pastry cook Florenza Rondón.  Recently, the menus has expanded. On Sundays, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, you can enjoy brunch with friends or family as well.  Simultaneously, the restaurant transitions to a cocktail bar every day and gathers local and international DJ’s almost every weekend.
