The all-over white-painted Hueso restaurant in Guadalajara, Mexico is a breath-taking cabinet of curiosities. More total artwork than dining venue, it is located in the city’s Lafayette Design District.
The restaurant has been installed in a renovated, modernistic building dating back to the 1940s. Its walls are covered from ceiling to floor with more than 10,000 animal bones made of aluminum, as well as knives and drawings of skeletons. Appropriately, “hueso” is the Spanish for bone. Against this rather bizarre backdrop, starred chef Alfonso Cadena displays his exquisite culinary talents.
