Fodor's Expert Review Imprevist

$$$ Playa del Carmen Asian Fodor's Choice

The name means "unexpected," and––thanks to the international dishes created by executive chef Juan Diego Solombrino—this place is truly a surprise. At breakfast, you can order hangover-healing eggs Benedict, Belgian waffles, or old-fashioned French toast; later, Imprevist pulls out all the stops with a hint of molecular gastronomy in the tuna tartare with lime and sake foam, and the chilled beetroot soup with goat cheese croquettes, truffle oil, and thyme cream. Risotto choices include a seafood number with squid ink and shaved fennel. The fish cooked in parchment is unbelievably moist, and the beef fillet with foie gras mousse practically melts in your mouth. The cool cocktails and sticky date cake will leave you longing for a siesta. Seating is available at sidewalk tables and in an intimate underground dining room.
