Opening of Calle 47 Gastronomic, Food ST in Centro Merida

What a surprise to walk down Calle 47 and witness the transformation of newest tourist site in the Historic Centre of Merida! Eight new restaurants, cafes, elegant hotels such as the Casa Lecanda grace the sides of the new cobblestone road. Wonderful outdoor seating areas set with tables, lights and plants created a very romantic mood, welcoming guests to sit and enjoy a meal or glass of wine. The removal of the poles and overhead wiring, now underground, provides a clean modern look with an unobstructed view of the dreamy Mexican sky. Two drones hovered above the street crowd, capturing the opening visit from Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal and Mayor Barrera Concha. Street performers ranged from fine artists, Spanish, Mexican and Mayan dancers, acrobats, and musical presentations. Indeed, it was the most perfect evening, shared with new friends from Canada. We completed the evening at the Tropico Restaurant on Calle 56. Scott and I both had shawarma wraps that were so tasty. The menu also featured a 2 for 1 price Gin & Tonic special which led to crazy dancing to the most wonderfully talented band. The 47th Street Corridor is the excellent option to enjoy the diversity of the food culture in Merida. Can’t wait to share Calle 47 with our guests at Casa Nicolee.
