Drake One Fifty Welcomes Guest Chef, Donnie Masterton for A One Night Only, Cinco de Mayo Inspired Dinner!

Posted by Drake, March 30, 2015

We're thrilled to welcome back guest chef Donnie Masterton of critically acclaimed foodie favourite, The Restaurant in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico to our kitchen! For one night only on May 5, Masterton will be our guest chef at Drake One Fifty, bringing with him a menu of Mexican-inspired dishes perfectly timed and seasoned for Cinco de Mayo.

Masterton changed the culinary landscape of artists’ colony and expat haven San Miguel de Allende. Voted by Condé Nast Traveler as the top city in the world in 2013, Masterton brought “global comfort food” to the quaint mountain town 166 miles northwest of Mexico City. Considered to be the original fine dining restaurant in San Miguel, The Restaurant changed the culture of locavorism and set the town on a new path. Critics unanimously agree, Masterton's restaurant is one of the best in San Miguel, using organic ingredients from local ranchers, growers, and dairy farmers, opening the The Restaurant in 2008 was the culmination of Masterton’s passion for food and wine.

Before his move to Mexico, Masterton apprenticed under legendary New York Chef David Bouley at New York’s Montrachet, and was subsequently mentored by renowned American Chef Patrick Clark at restaurants in Beverly Hills, D.C., and New York. After helming several high profile restos in California’s Bay Area, Masterton packed up and moved to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, in pursuit of a simpler life.

Most recently, Masterton's expertise brought him to the small screen where he served as a guest judge in the finale of Top Chef U.S. (which was also filmed at The Restaurant).

For this special Cinco de Mayo Guest Chef Dinner at Drake One Fifty, Masterton will collaborate on a menu of modern interpretations of classical Mexican dishes. With tequila cocktail pairings and accompanying Latin grooves, this Cinco de Mayo event is one you won't want to miss!
