The name Oxte is a reference to the hometowns of Enrique Casarrubias' parents in southern Mexico: and, with his Michelin-starred restaurant near the Arc du Triomphe, the chef offers diners an insight into the tastes and smells of his childhood, combining French ingredients with the spices and condiments of his homeland. This approach to fusion food results in dishes that are vibrant and spicy, yet also subtle and elegant. Casarrubias has been wowing Parisian gourmets since his time at Le Crillon and the Four Seasons Hotel George V. He was also named a “Young Talent” by French fine dining guide Gault & Millau. Top of the list of must-try dishes are the chef's specialities, including ceviche-style longfin tuna with mussels and peppers, pigeon with rainbow chard and tortilla dust, and his incredible avocado with white chocolate and lime.
The restaurant's ideal location in the Arc du Triomph district, minimalist decor (royal blue seats, light wood tables and pink marble), and high-calibre cuisine make it a popular destination for business lunches and romantic dinners alike.
