The surname of gastronomy

Meizenq is an illustrious surname in gastronomic matters in Mendoza. It is enough to remember the Class cafe, in San Martín and Sarmiento; the Geo disco and that very crowded Pizza Top to measure the success of family businesses.

And Carlos Meizenq, with the Gregoria Matorras restaurant grill, is willing to continue down the path of innovation and success at the same time.

– Why “Meat, Art and History”?

– Because we are in the Alameda showing the historic area and its streets walked by characters such as the Father of the Nation at the time of the preparation of the Army of the Andes for the liberating deed. The proximity to the San Martín Public Library, with the statue of San Martín and his daughter sitting in the Alameda and with the house of the Father of the Nation inaugurated on Corrientes street give it an intimate and historical tone at the same time. Of belonging. As much as the fantasy name, Gregoria Matorras, in honor of the mother of San Martín.

– And Gardel, how is it that he appears on the scene?

– Because in 1933 he sang in Mendoza, a few blocks from here, in the remembered Palace Theater, in San Martín almost Godoy Cruz. It was the last time she performed in Mendoza and that is also part of our history that deserves to be told and evoked.

Culture, food for the spirit

Art and culture are at the service of the gastronomic venue because Carlos Meizenq has a degree in Fine Arts and is a specialist in 3D animation. “I graduated in the United States in 1997 and develop my projects abroad and in the country,” he says.

Area

The “Caminito” area is located in the Alameda, near the house of the Liberator and the public library and a few meters from the statue of San Martín and his daughter, Merceditas.

Part of his creations can be seen on his Instagram account, some in development.

The perfume of a grilled rib intersects with the decoration of the place, of walls with legends that allude to the Caminito Mendocino de la Revolución, for that of San Martín and the liberation of Argentina, Chile and Peru planned in Mendoza, in the shadow of the guys

The menu is the excuse, the vehicle to make that kind of time travel, towards our past, to recognize ourselves in that Latin American DNA.
