From September 15th – December 19th, 2021
We Are ONA is bringing a new pop-up to the heart of Mexico City.
Located on the rooftop terrace of Grupo Habita’s new hotel, Circulo Mexicano, ONA Mexico will bring French “Bistronomie” to Mexico, providing a 6-course tasting menu which will combine French cuisine with local Mexican ingredients. Each menu will be accompanied by a wine pairing, both created by a monthly invited chef and sommelier.
The menu will change as the team explores the rich cultural heritage of Mexico, cooking with open fire – which has become an ONA signature.
The guests will enjoy the breathtaking view of the capital’s Metropolitan Cathedral, National Palace, Templo Mayor and Torre Latinoamericana, making it one of the most attractive meeting points in the city.

Growing up in Bath, Harry developed his passion for cooking at a young age and left school to devote himself to the kitchen at the age of 16. Trained in London, he worked at restaurants such as Wild Honey St James, Arbutus and Zafferano. After moving to Paris to work at Frenchie, he met Laura Vidal and Julia Mitton, with whom he set up The Paris Popup, a nomadic ephemeral restaurant.
In 2016, the three of them bought a restaurant in Marseille, and transformed it into what is now La Mercerie. Having traveled extensively with The Paris Popup, Harry acquired a lot of techniques and inspirations through the various countries he visited which is the guiding principle of his cuisine at La Mercerie.
Guided by her love of “eating well” and “drinking well”, Marie Delbarry left the world of fashion design to become a sommelier. She trained between Paris and the south of France in Marseille in starred restaurants and in addresses particularly attentive to natural wines such as Saturne, Orties, and La Cave des Papilles.
Marie is a sensitive person, who likes to go and meet the winegrowers, beyond discovering the terroirs she has been able to create a link with each of them. “What I like in this job is the human contact, the sincerity, the relationship with the simple things in life, the nature…”.
