CONTEMPORARY MEXICAN CUISINE

NÜ's goal is to make you discover the richness of the modern Mexican cuisine through flavourful and original recipes.

NÜ is run by 7 talented Chefs lead by Cesar Castañeda, who was elected as one of Mexico’s 10 best Chefs under 30 by Gourmet Magazine.

When leaving Mexico City to start this adventure, the team of 7 got their arm tattooed with a heptagon symbolizing the spiritual bond between them.

This tattoo  then became our logo, and we are very proud of it.

NÜ is the brainchild of adventurer, design enthusiast and entrepreneur Yves Naman, who is also behind La Valise Hotels.

Cesar Castañeda

Cesar’s first encounter with gastronomy was at a young age, when he saw a French cuisine cookbook and discovered the subtlety of the dishes contained in that edition, he directly knew he wanted to dedicate his life to be a Chef.

Cesar enjoys every part of his life in the kitchen, his profession makes him proud and every detail of it is valuable to him. This professional vision was transmitted to him through critically acclaimed Marta Ortiz (Aguila y Sol and Dulce Patria) then with Mexico Top Chef finalist Matteo Salas (Oca, Aperi, Jacinto 1930) with whom he has always had a close relationship.

After being the Executive Chef of Condesa DF, Cesar along with his team of 6 young talented chefs decided to move to Tulum to open NÜ where they express their vision of Mexican gastronomy. "I want to constantly reinvent myself, I always want to be surprised, in Tulum I found a home where everything has flowed naturally and organically, I feel very happy to be able to share my version of Mexico in this happy period of my life".
