PUJOL

Pujol, Enrique Olvera’s first project, opened its doors in 2000. Olvera’s cuisine is always transforming, drawing on ideas from here and there that he revisits and also evolve. The roots of his proposal are well rooted in high quality ingredients and the different techniques of Mexican cuisine.

Los Angeles,
CA 90021

Damian is a restaurant in Los Angeles’ Arts District serving contemporary cuisine rooted in Mexican culture. Inspired by the Pacific coasts’ culinary traditions, while celebrating seasonal Californian produce. Damian’s beverage program focuses on artisanal spirits and mirrors its cuisine, letting the high quality ingredients shine.

ATLA

ATLA is a casual all-day eatery offering simple and traditional yet inventive Mexican dishes as we understand it: no short-cuts, authentic, yet with a global perspective and an unequivocal focus on fresh, organic, sustainable and seasonal ingredients. While relaxed in nature, the restaurant is flexible enough to gradually evolve into a sleek night-time venue to showcase the depth of our hand-crafted beverages in a lively environment.

TICUCHI

Ticuchi means bat in Mixtec and is the name of the agave distillate bar that opened its doors in the former Pujol location. Ticuchi’s interior displays velvet, wood and concrete elements that, dimly lit by candlelight, create an intimate and elegant atmosphere. The beverage proposal is articulated around a careful selection of distillates from the state of Oaxaca and includes elegant and sober drinks that enhance the complexity of the spirits.

CRIOLLO

Calzada Madero 129,
Oaxaca de Juárez

Criollo is a space away from the busy center of Oaxaca, housed inside a colonial-style mansion, Criollo celebrates the cuisines of the different regions of the state. It has an intimate and elegant interior patio that connects to the restaurant’s garden through a cactus garden. In the garden, long tables invite the diner to a more casual experience, but as authentic as the first section of the restaurant. Tucked away in the back of the restaurant is Casa Criollo, the restaurant’s guesthouse. It is a space adorned with Mexican art and furnishings that offers travelers a space for disconnection and enjoyment.

DITROIT

Ditroit is a taqueria in Damian’s back alley. With a laid-back nature, its food menu is simple and tasty, celebrating Mexican food classics: flautas, tacos de suadero, carnitas and even mole.

ENO

Eno currently operates five locations in Mexico City. Each address is strongly rooted in its neighborhood and the menu, almost identical in all of them, includes Mexican classics for breakfast and lunch but also has an all-day menu.. Its proposal turns around seasonal ingredients of exceptional quality, all the ingredients used are local, product of responsible agriculture.

MOLINO

Molino “El Pujol” is a mill and tortillería located in Colonia Condesa, in addition to grinding once a week the mole used in Pujol and every day the nixtamalized corn to provide corn dough to Casamata restaurants in Mexico City, Molino “El Pujol” offers its visitors tortillas and preparations made from corn: tamales, tacos, corn on the cob, esquites, quesadillas, atole and champurrado.

MANTA

Inspired by the simplicity and elegance of the desert, Manta was conceived as a black box that focuses on the views from one of the most desirable and secluded playas in Cabo. Its´ name has a thoughtful double meaning: a manta ray which symbolizes the kitchen’s focus on seafood, while manta, the Spanish word for canvas, conveys the idea of freedom in artistic expression. As The Cape’s culinary centerpiece, Manta celebrates Pacific coasts cultures; taking inspiration from Mexico, Peru, Japan and beyond. Manta’s cuisine commitment is to source local and sustainable ingredients from Baja, while maintaining a casual spirit.

JERÓNIMO

Located in The Madrid EDITION, Jerónimo is the first Casamata proyect in Europe. The restaurant offers cuisine inspired in the authenticity and generosity of Mexican gastronomy and the excellent quality of Madrid’s local products. The menu at Jerónimo offers classic dishes that build a dialogue between Mexico and Spain, casual and substantial plates inspired by local and seasonal produce. This culinary offering never seen before in Madrid, confidently mixes Spanish products with Mexican recipes.

CARAO

Located inside One&Only Mandarina, Carao is a celebration of the Mexican North Pacific. Inspired by the palapas found on the region’s sandy beaches, the restaurant is a space of delicate luminosity where one can breathe while appreciating the generous surroundings of the region. Carao’s menu revisits classics such as zarandeado fish and, like the rest of Casamata’s projects, pays particular attention to the development of working networks with local suppliers while taking care of every detail to offer visitors to the restaurant a unique experience.
