“Perhaps the best reason to visit is simply because there is almost nothing else like it in this country.” –Larry Olmsted, USA TODAY
Zocalito Latin Bistro in Aspen, Colorado, is home to chef Michael Beary, the man who is doing more than anyone to bring the authentic ingredients and true flavors of Oaxaca to America. Over the years, Beary has traveled widely in the Oaxaca region and now works directly with farmers and food artisans who supply him with everything from rarechile peppers to roasted grasshoppers. He’s even become the only importer in America to regularly ship back large quantities of these marvelous materials, and he offers them for sale in the online shop. Zocalito Latin Bistro is located at 420 East Hyman Avenue in Aspen, Colorado.
