Beautiful Casa Jacaranda dates from 1913, the earliest years of Colonia Roma. Art gallery, treasure trove and funhouse all in one, the house is everything that Beto and Jorge love in life: beauty, nostalgia, intelligence . . . a place for friends and ideas. It’s the ideal setting to try something new. A house of intriguing ghosts and lively living spirits.
Everything you cook at Casa Jacaranda is delicious, fresh, delicate and refined. But it’s not about spectacle, competition or molecular science. Here the focus is authentic Mexican food as part of a life lived fully—beautifully—and anyplace on earth. Jacaranda’s signature sazón lives on a human scale and close to the earth.
The word that Mexican cooking had to invent, sobremesa is the sazón that’s left over after dessert plates are cleared. Lively, post-prandial conversations on lazy afternoons. A drop of digestif to sweeten smart opinions. Holding on to taste memories that can’t last forever—relishing the moment. Sobremesa is good friends and the good life, free from blinking distractions. The world lies outside, but you’re happy right where you are. That urgent tweet is a sparrow in the spreading jacaranda overhead.
