The hummingbird, or "el zunzun," as Cubans call their local species, is the tiniest Central American ambassador. Inspiration for this restaurant came as owner, Becky Satterfield contemplated the 1,000-mile journey hummers make each year, sampling local flavors as they go. What better way to honor them and highlight their ecological significance than to serve cuisine based on their migratory path?
Satterfield and El ZunZún’s executive chef, Angela Schmidt spent three months in Mexico, taking classes, shopping in local markets, and working side-by-side with the abuelas (grandmothers) who patiently taught the old ways.
El ZunZún is as inviting as the kitchens of the abuelas we've learned from—a place where people are reminded of the importance of slowing down to observe nature's lessons (while enjoying an authentic tortilla, of course!).
