WHO WE ARE
Gastronomy Underground is a collective of Mexican Chefs who cooked in some of New York City's best Michellin-Starred Restaurants and decided to return to the Ancestral kitchen and redefine what it means to be a Mexican cook in New York City and what it means to be Mexican as a whole.
WHERE WE COME FROM
Established in the middle of the global COVID-19 pandemic, Gastronomy Underground was born out of necessity. Out of a need to understand and rediscover Mexican food culture and to fulfill our need for creative expression by providing sustenance. Founders Pablo Rojas and Roxanna Mejia come from very different culinary regions in Mexico. The dichotomy found in Central Mexican Cuisine and the Mexican Northern Kitchen is best embodied in our creative team and delivered right to your home.
WHERE WE'RE GOING
At GU we want to explore the richness and diversity of our food culture; from the newly established fine dining scene to the unregulated street stalls that operate underground, sometimes literally.
We aim to recognize the often-unseen contributions that other food cultures have had on what today is known as "Mexican Food". What would be of a salsa without Europe's onion? What would be of Mole without Asia's spices? How do we redefine the cuisine of a conquered nation and explore its conflicts while also honoring our Pre-hispanic roots and traditions? We hope to find more questions than answers.
