When brothers Jorge and Mark Rausch opened Criterion 6 years ago, there were only 2 restaurants in Bogota in that area. Now, Zona G is known as the gourmet district, and 42 restaurants fight for space. But despite an influx in competition, Criterion still wears the crown. Jorge worked at the Savoy and with Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir aux Quatre Saisons, and his impressive credentials have been put to good use with Criterion’s French fare. There’s a fantastic wine menu (450 bottles to choose from), and if you can’t decide what to order, then go for the tasting menu. Foie gras mousse, scallops and steak are all cooked to perfection, and the quality of the food means you’ll get good value for your money. On your way out don’t forget to pick up a Rausch cookery book, and if you’re truly intrigued, look out for their reality TV show.
