BOGOTA

Fortunately, Bogotá offers something for everyone, and foodies will not be disappointed; there are several vibrant restaurant districts throughout the metropolis. The Zona T is a pedestrian-only strip that fills up at night with hip scenesters. Harry Sasson, one of the country’s most important chefs and a recognized culinary athlete (he participated in the prestigious IKA/HOGA Culinary Olympics in 1988), has two eateries within walking distance from each other. H. Sasson Wok & Satay Bar (Calle 83 No. 12-49, Tel: 57-1-616-4520. http://www.harrysasson.com) specializes in Thai food, including a chicken casserole in a red curry sauce that’s not for the faint of heart. Situated in a lovely old house, Club Colombia (Avenida 82 No. 9-16 Tel: 57-1-249-5681) serves up succulent regional dishes in a sophisticated setting. Try the carne a la llanera, a satisfying country-style steak that goes down best with lulo juice, from a tangy, tropical fruit native to the country.

The hottest new culinary destination is the Zona G (between Calle 69 and Calle 70, Tel: 57-1-310-2810). The “G” stands for “gourmet” and the area lives up to its name. Favorites include Criterion (Calle 69A No. 5-75, Tel: 57-1-310-1377), an exceptional French restaurant with its own bakery; La Hamburgueseria (Calle 70 No. 4-69, Tel: 57-1-321-3350) a trendy burger joint inspired by the Stones’ Rock and Roll Circus film; and Suruba (Calle 69 No. 4-40, Tel: 57-1-312-2939), which translates to “orgy” and offers a pleasurable experience based on small portions.

There’s also exclusive Parque de la 93 (Calle 93A to 93B between Carrera 11A and Carrera 13), an attractive green lung, or city park, surrounded by yet more eateries, bars, and hangouts.

If you only have time to sit down for one full-course meal, opt for Leo Cocina Y Cava (Calle 27B No. 6-75, Tel: 57-1-286-7091). Located in the bohemian neighborhood of La Macarena, this white dining room serves as a canvas for Chef Leonor Espinosa’s creations. She reinvents coastal Colombian dishes by adding unexpected ingredients that surprise even the most sophisticated palette. Try a delicate white fillet perched on coconut rice and wrapped in plantain leaves; it arrives at the table as neat as a gift. By dessert, you’ll be booking a return trip to Bogotá just to eat here again.
