At Fonda, his new restaurant, Roberto applies more than two decades of devotion and expertise to the cuisine of his native country. He brings the kind of contemporary, urban fare you’d find in Mexico City to a hip, relaxed atmosphere in Brooklyn.
For the Corona ‘Countdown to Cinco de Mayo,’ Chef Roberto Santibañez has created a number of dishes that incorporate traditional, authentic ingredients and that pair well with a variety of Mexican brews, including Corona Extra, Corona Light, Modelo Especial, Negra Modelo and Pacifico.
