Multi-award winning Jaso is set in the heart of Polanco, and is run by American trained chefs Sonia Arias (pastries) and executive chef Jared Reardon. Their restaurant follows a strict "word of mouth only" marketing strategy, which also means the place has no sign, and is not listed. Yet since its opening, this little treasure has remained a popular spot for any epicurian in the city. The influences are clearly American with a slight French fusion and they specialize in a 5 or 9 dish tasting menu which is costumised for each costumer. They dinning experience is unique not just due to its costumised format, but also due to the tasteful surrounds' two levels, an inner garden, a stunning outside terrace, and particular attention on stimulation all 5 senses. Likewise Jaso has had several accolades for their wine list which includes over 450 different labels. All staff are qualified to suggest the perfect bottle for your meal. Jaso, like most of its surrounding neighbourhood of Polanco, is expensive.
