Cosme’s Chef de Cuisine Talks Ingredient Sourcing and Esquites

Not all Mexican restaurants come with bells and whistles — brightly colored walls, perhaps an occasional sombrero or two. Cosme is delightfully understated in design, enhancing the drama of the main art, the food.

Located in New York’s Flatiron District, Cosme has joined the ranks of the “who’s who” crowd, but not based on hype alone. The restaurant is a recurring Foodable Top 25 ranker and was recently chosen as “Restaurant of the Year” in Eater’s 2015 Eater Awards for New York City. Cosme is run by a group of twenty-somethings, proving age is just a number.

In this “Table 42” Vignette, brought to you by the Foodable WebTV Network, Cosme’s chef de cuisine, Daniela Soto-Innes, talks about growing up in Mexico City, gives us a deeper understanding of Cosme’s ingredients and ingredient sourcing, and whips up some Lobster Esquites.
