Alcalde is a gastronomic proposal that presents an exquisite simplicity, brings textures and flavours made for guests willing to be surprised at each stage of this experience. Behind the knife is a man from Guadalajara with a rebellious and perfectionist personality, with a genuine passion for flavours, especially traditional Mexican food, as the result of his mother’s and grandmother’s upbringing. Executive Chef Francisco Ruano, who after finishing his studies in Guadalajara, studied at the Luis Irizar Cooking School, one of the most prestigious in Spain, then working in restaurants such as Mugaritz (Basque Country), Celler de Can Roca (Girona) and Noma (Denmark), all of which are listed among the best in the world. His experience in European kitchens had a decisive influence on his cooking. Learning the importance of being close to the land and adopting simplicity in the presentation of his dishes, he brought these two essential qualities to the daily routine at Alcalde.
