Food In the Time Of Covid19: restaurants, Groceries, Wine & MoreWhere to Order In in Merida
MID CityBeat On the Merida Scene During the Covid-19 CrisisLet's Continue to Support the Local Economy! --We are all in this together.**Check the list below for restaurants, coffee shops, fruit and vegetable stands, coffee distributors, beer, wine and spirits, organic and healthy food all taking extreme precautions and making home deliveries. As they say in Spanish "una mano lava la otra y las dos lavan la cara"-- very fitting in these times "One hand washes the other and they both wash the face" meaning...if we work together we can all survive this with the least amount of damage. We have found ourselves in quite a dilemma with this virus that has basically taken over the world and told us that it is in charge until further notice. We are all trying to understand the severity, be smart and rational at the same time. Like Thomas Zimmer said in his twitter account: "The weirdest part about living through the #Covid19 pandemic is this strange mixture of normalcy and emergency that we are all experiencing. I constantly feel that I am either over or underreacting, or really both at the exact same times, it's surreal."He totally nailed it.

Spasso Italian Cuisine Elegant dining In the Heart of Merida
A few weeks ago we tried Spasso an authentic Italian authentic located in the Hyatt, Merida. We had been hearing lots of great reviews and decided to try it ourselves. The restaurant itself is chic and elegant a perfect spot for a romantic dinner or intimate evening with friends. Spasso started in the Hyatt over ten years ago as an Italian restaurant priding themselves on maintaining the true essence of Italy. The concept changed when Amuza restaurant replaced Spasso in the same location for several years, but now just last year Spasso is back and so is the Italian kitchen! They import many of the ingredients direcly from Italy and they offer a full gourmet menu with salads, soups, antipastos, risottos, seafood and meat dishes, pastas and some fabulous desserts. They also have a stone pizza oven and make fresh foccacia and pizzas.
