Surrounded by vibrant colors and the various somber expressions of Frida Kahlo, Sazón fuses seasonally fresh ingredients with scrumptious iterations of 30-ingredient mole sauce. The Mexico City-born, 10-gallon hat-sporting chef Fernando Olea oversees all proceedings, including the choreographed, ‘brigade-style’ service.” – 5280 Magazine
