John Gray's Downtown, Cancún

Avenida Xpuhil SM 19
Tel: 52 998 883 9800's insider take:

Brilliant underground promoter John Gray has lent his name to yet another buzz-worthy restaurant, this time in downtown Cancún. Hotel concierges barely know of the restaurant's existence, and if they try to track down the chef, they're often referred to the classier Grill 14, which carried his name for a while. But Gray, a former Ritz-Carlton chef, is a do-it-yourself kind of guy, with restaurants in Puerto Morelos and Playa del Carmen. His Cancún foray is all about making the scene amid the melange of languages and pretty people filling the industrial chic rooms. Although the food doesn't quite live up to the hype, downtowners are thrilled to have a chic neighborhood haunt for posing among the pretty people. Choose the savory onion soup, avoid the paté, and stick with the steak-frites entrée or the daily specials on the country French–Mexican menu.

Open Mondays through Saturdays noon to midnight.
