Hotel Matilda Celebrates Day of the Dead with ‘Black Dinner’

A magical Day of the Dead is coming to Hotel Matilda with Mexico’s queen of culinary theater creating a “Black Dinner with Sorcerers, Witches and Some Magical Potions” that personifies this quintessential Mexican holiday.

Directing the hauntingly delicious culinary extravaganza will be Martha Ortiz, Mexico’s internationally acclaimed chef heralded for her creative and sensational gastronomic events and her historical research into Mexican food traditions. Spicing up the dinner will be an exhibit of photography with Day of the Dead themes by artists represented by Patricia Conde Gallery, a leading Mexico City gallery.  

“Our Black Dinner will make the Day of the Dead come alive through the masterful innovation of Martha Ortiz, the eclectic and edgy spirit of Hotel Matilda, and the joy, revelry and emotion of a holiday that has very special meaning for the people of Mexico,” said Director Bruce James. Hotel Matilda is a trend-setting contemporary boutique hotel offering a lifestyle-focused guest experience and a full calendar of artistic and culinary events.

The Black Dinner is on Nov. 1, 2014. Cost: $135 per person including wine pairing. For more information, contact eventos@hotelmatilda.com or visit www.hotelmatilda.com.
