Highlighting New York City Cuisine at Kaiser Maximilian until Dec. 13th.

Posted on Updated on

New York City is known for its skyscrapers, Times Square, Broadway musicals, Wall Street and its food. It is a hotbed of culinary fusion. NYC is not only a depot for cuisines from around the world, but the place where many important dishes originated, if not by pure invention, then as uniquely compelling adaptations of things that migrated in from elsewhere.

Kaiser-Maximilian-backdoor-001During the 20th Annual Festival Gourmet, Kaiser Maximilian Restaurant in Puerto Vallarta is featuring some of the iconic foods from New York City. Chef and Owner Andreas Rupprechter, Executive Chef Juan Carlos Palomera and Guest Chef Chris Bradley from New York City have created a special menu highlighting NYC cuisine with a twist. These dishes were created especially for this event.

The Festival Gourmet runs November 13 – 23, 2014 but you can enjoy the NYC menu at Kaiser Maximilan until December 13, 2014. Some of these items may become part of the regular menu.
