DiverXO moves to the NH Collection Eurobuilding

  • Share on Tumblr

One of the favorite sentences of  David Muñoz , chef of DiverXo,  is: “Dying to take on the world and with many changes ahead of us”. Since he won his 3rd Michelin star last November, this has been somewhat of his motto. 

Since this milestone event, the rumours of a potential move have been constant. David had been thinking about the idea of a new location for some time. His creative, restless and sometimes wild mind is always on the move. This announcement marks a step in the direction of the new DiverXO; or will it be the same DiverXO?

This month, Argentina calls on all gourmet travellers hungry for unique experiences and excellent wine and food. Eating in Argentina is strongly influenced by Europe, especially Mediterranean cooking, with a great emphasis on local products and of course, its quality beef. The country is famous for its grass fed cattle and the gauchos who work the open range but it is also known for its amazing vineyards, a true heaven for wine lovers.

There is no doubt that Malbec is the grape on which Argentina’s international reputation as a wine producing nation is founded. But it isn’t the only grape grown here. If you´re tempted to discover Argentina´s wine regions, dramatic landscapes  and indulge in the quality of their food and wine, this is definitely the month to travel. Buenos Aires Food Week, Mendoza´s Master Food & Wine and World Malbec Day all take place in April. Sound tempting?
