Every year our pueblo plays its part in the Punta del Este Food & Wine Festival. The grand finale this year, in front of Francis Mallmann’s Hotel and Restaurant Garzon, is a fiery flourish of deliciousness.
Punta del Este Food & Wine Festival This lively festival always features events, cocktails and dinners hosted by some of South America’s top winemakers and restaurateurs. Look for popular local chefs such as Lucia Soria of Lucifer, Marcelo Betancourt from Estancia and Playa Vik, and Francis Mallmann, who orchestrates a Seven Fires extravaganza in the town square at Garzón. It’s a fiery finale to a fantastic weekend. October 26–28, 2012; puntafoodandwine.com. – Shane Mitchell, Travel + Leisure Magazine.
