Mexico City

Quintonil –Mexico City, 2012– is the emblem for the gastronomical project headed by Alejandra Flores and Jorge Vallejo. The aim is to express Mexican flavors with a personal touch.

Since 2015, Quintonil has been included on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list. Today it is ranked twenty four worldwide and ninth on the 50 Best Latin American Restaurants list.


Jorge Vallejo

Jorge Vallejo opened Quintonil to develop a cuisine that would emphasize Mexican ingredients and traditional techniques to transform them into today’s context.
Today, Vallejo concentrates on product and flavor quality by working with regional producers who spark a positive impact on their communities and on the ecosystems where they live.

Alejandra Flores

Alejandra received her bachelor’s degree in restaurant management from the Centro de Estudios Superiores de San Ángel (CESSA), and she received her masters in Hospitality Management, with a specialization in marketing, from Switzerland’s Les Roches School. When she returned to Mexico, she became the director of operations and later the commercial director for the Enrique Olvera Group.
In 2012, opened Quintonil with her husband Jorge Vallejo. Alejandra’s vocation and knowledge focused on the dining room and operations area have made it possible to forge Quintonil’s hospitality-based strategy. This has resulted in effective communication between the kitchen and the dining room, and, of course, a full experience for the restaurant’s guests.
