Cosme in New York

Woolworths TASTE - - Trends -

New York restau­rants have their own, slick take on the pared-down aes­thetic. At Cosme, En­rique Olvera and Daniela Soto-Innes ap­ply an as­cetic aes­thetic to Mex­i­can meals. It’s a look that en­cap­su­lates la milpa, a Mex­i­can agri­cul­tural phi­los­o­phy where noth­ing is wasted and ev­ery­thing serves a pur­pose. Think mono­chrome meringues flavoured with corn husk, or a con­cha – a kind of sweet Mex­i­can bread – made with black sesame seeds – served on white crock­ery.
