The Brothers Gershwin, George and Ira, will be celebrated at a special jazz brunch on Sunday, January 21, from 1 to 4 pm. Performing such great Gershwin tunes as “Summertime,” “The Man I Love,” and “I Got Rhythm,” among others, will be Joan Yonkler, vocalist; Antonio Lozoya, bass player extraordinaire; and Patricio Peña, jazz pianist.

The Brothers Dominguez, Alonso and Luis, are master chefs at their well-regarded restaurant Nextia, inside the Hotel Nena. Alonso is a young chef whose particular vision of cooking distinguishes him from others. He and his younger brother, Luis, grew up learning about the culinary arts from their father, Bricio Dominguez, who runs several outstanding restaurants in both San Miguel and in Guanajuato. Growing up in the restaurant business induced Alonso to spend several years in Europe to study fine cuisine. His culinary education led to creating and serving Nueva Gastronomía Mexicana.

The word “Nextia” means to create in Náhuatl. The cuisine combines traditional Mexican and Spanish cooking with a modern touch. “Many of the products we use in our menu come from various towns and villages in the state of Guanajuato. We treat each dish as carefully as we would treat ourselves,” said Alonso.

Nextia has placed 6th in the 15 Best Restaurants in Mexico 2016 and 19th in the 101 Best Restaurants in Latin America and the Caribbean 2016.

For the jazz brunch, the brothers have created a masterful menu of favorite brunch items with choices such as eggs Benedict with salmon, bagels with smoked salmon and accompaniments, and chilaquiles verdes. The price of 380 pesos also includes a welcome mimosa, fruit juices, a buffet of fresh fruit and various cereals, and fresh coffee. Service is not included.

Last year Joan and Antonio performed a sold-out concert featuring Cole Porter songs. This concert is a continuation that features composers from the Great American Songbook.
