2018 Dining Award Winner: Alamexo

written by: Mary Brown Malouf    photo by: Adam Finkle

You can’t understand a culture until you’ve eaten its food—that’s the gastronomic prescription for world peace. Chef Matthew Lake’s Alamexo dispels stereotypes of Mexican cuisine (and therefore culture), presenting that country’s myriad regional and sophisticated foods as a counterbalance to the American cult of the taco. Note: Alamexo also serves tacos.
