The history of Paxia is one of renaissance and for chef Daniel Ovadia, a return to his origins with a gourmet proposal of Mexican food that his diners have fallen in love with since 2005.
It left the south (its original location was in San Ángel) and reopened its doors in 2021 inside the emblematic Edificio España at Venustiano Carranza 69, Historic Center of Mexico City.
After going up to the terrace, the guests will begin a unique gastronomic experience amid great views of the First Table of the capital.
Currently, you can enjoy its Black tasting menu, which has the particularity of being in black. Each dish presents a dark proposal, full of flavor and that allows you to take a trip throughout Mexico.
