Dinner Series Puts Art on Your Plate at Grand Velas Los Cabos

Artwork comes to life on your plate at the Grand Velas Los Cabos new on-property art gallery. The resort has launched a new weekly art-to-table dinner series. It’s an opportunity to not only dine inside the gallery surrounded by one-of-a-kind pieces by Mexico’s leading artists, but to eat food and drink wine inspired by the pieces on the wall.

The art-to-table dinners are hosted each Monday. Up to 12 guests are welcome into the gallery to enjoy a five-course meal paired with wine.

At a recent dinner, for example, guests were delighted with black shrimp aguachile with blue curacao, olive and citrus dust and presented on the plate to mimic Mexican artist Yandi Monardo’s abstract blue-and-yellow canvases. There was also a “tikiin xic” style sea bass with onion and tortilla ash that was styled to look as if the food was dancing, just like the figures in Alejandrina Calderoni’s artwork. An accompanying wine pairing, including multiple vintages from Mexico’s fine wine region, enhanced the meal.

The gallery curator will be on-hand at each dinner to explain the art that has inspired the meal. The chef and a sommelier will provide details about how they created the dishes and paired wines to complement the art. Reservations are required to participate in the art-to-table dinner. Every three months, the gallery will rotate pieces from different artists.

The art gallery represents another major commitment of the hotel to showcasing the country’s finest art in different mediums. There’s a permanent display of 25 pieces available for viewing in the resort’s lobby and boutique, and original art is displayed in the resort’s 307 suites.

Curated by San Jose del Cabo gallery owner Patricia Mendoza, the art gallery at Grand Velas Los Cabos opened in June 2019. The gallery is open from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Saturday.
