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

Born in Mexico City, Cesar decided at 12 years old to dedicate his life to gastronomy.

He strived to acquire and master techniques, learning from some of the best Chefs in Mexico, and applying them to the richness of Mexican ingredients and flavors. Cesar is passionate about his profession and enjoys every part of his life in the kitchen. This work ethics was first transmitted by critically acclaimed Chef Martha Ortiz (Aguila y Sol and Dulce Patria) and then by Mexico Top Chef finalist Matteo Salas (Oca, Aperi, Jacinto 1930) with whom Cesar maintains a strong friendship and professional bond.

After being the Executive Chef of Condesa DF, Cesar along with his team of young talented chefs decided to move to Tulum to open NÜ where they express their vision of Mexican gastronomy.  Elected in April one of Mexico’s 10 best Chefs under 30 by Gourmet Magazine, Cesar commented “I want to constantly reinvent myself and want to be surprised, in Tulum I found a home where everything flows naturally and organically. I feel blessed to be able to share our version of the modern Mexican Cuisine".
