It's great to see that Chef Ryan Steyn has a place to showcase his talents in the Valle this season.

Several weeks ago we visited Clos de Tres Cantos, bought a bottle of wine, and had a deep philosophical conversation with the owner Joaquín. At some point the discussion veered from the meaning of life to a more concrete topic, the two suites he was building on the property.
At the time the rooms were empty shells, but by look of the pictures they posted on Facebook today the suites are visitor ready.
I believe Benito and Solange Molina's Silvestre was the very first campestre (open air seasonal restaurant) in the Valle. Silvestre is now open for the season on Saturdays and Sundays. It is located off Hwy 3 at km 73.6.
For reservations call Manzanilla (their restaurant in Ensenada) -- (646) 175-7073

I don't usually post about lodging options in Ensenada, but I'm making an exception for Nachitas Place. It is owned and operated by noted architect, Alejandro D'Acosta (Vena Cava, Bruma, Clos de Tres Cantos....) and it would be a great place to stay when the temperatures in the Valle soars.
