Hg2 : The Hedonist

Abasto

Bright walls are the backdrop to baskets of fresh produce like dates, olives and peppers in this charming example of one of the more international restaurants in Bogota. Tables fill the two rooms, while olive oils and wines for sale stand haphazardly along the walls. Head chef Luz Beatriz Velez races from kitchen to tables, adding finishing touches and chatting to the customers as she goes (she also speaks English, which is very handy for tourists). The effect is homey and slightly bohemian, and with every table full there’s always a lively atmosphere. Everything served is the best-the best meat, the best vegetables and the best chefs-and is presented in rustic style. The mashed potatoes have just enough garlic and herbs to be original, but not so much they taste unfamiliar; everything has that little extra touch. Come here on a Sunday, and head to the Usaquen market afterwards for a perfect weekend afternoon.
