What happened to Chef Roger?

Libby, I saw your dining scene article in the overview. We ate there in July 2005 and Chef Roger was very kind and made us a fabulous meal. He passed away?!

1. Re: What happened to Chef Roger?

Hi Ronsanator: Yes, sadly. I only know that he was in the hospital for a week (July 2006) before he died and, up to that point, he had been working in the restaurant as usual. His death came as a real shock to many people (myself included).

Fortunately for his wife, who still wants to keep the restaurant at Punta Mita going, he had apparently written down all his recipes in detail. So, if you come again, I'm sure it'll still be there and as good as you remember. They even have the same music on Friday nights :)

Here's an article from Virtual Vallarta.

We were there in August, but we haven't been there since. We'll make a point to go there soon and report back.

Libby, did you get a chance to eat here during your recent trip? If not, did you have any new, fun or interesting restaurant experiences in Punta Mita?

Hi Rosanator: We're still in Mexico (hopefully solidly until mid April when we go back for Income Tax time). We've only been to Punta Mita briefly, but not to eat. We'll get there. And we'll get to Chef Roger's place for sure.

Btw, do you guys rent a car when you're in Mexico?

Last week, we had a marvellous trip up the coast (about one hour from Punta Mita taking the road to Sayulita back to the Highway. We ate at Mahajua at Chacala. The whole day was wonderful.

Hi Libby, I keep forgetting to check this forum. I've been over on PV. Sometimes we do rent a car for a week, but for our upcoming trip in March we'll mostly be taking buses and cabs. It's an easy ride from Bucerias to Punta Mita. We were thinking of renting a car for a day to head north, so maybe we'll check out that restaurant. How long is the drive?

Now that was foolish of me. You clearly said it was a one hour drive. I'll read more carefully next time.
