Opening new doors
February is the month of love and #AMEXFORFOODIES brings the most innovating cultures and flavors of Buenos Aires' gastronomy. With the option of choosing between two dates, we invite you to Julia, a restaurant that opened its doors in 2019 and already sets the trend in the local scene. The young and renowned chef Julio Martín Baez will receive Marina Lis Ra, chef and creator of Na Num, a restaurant that is opening its doors in March and which name transcends borders. The delicacy of flowers and herbs gives a unique perfume and color to Julia's dishes, which combine with Na Num's personal mark in Korean cuisine. The menu, exclusively created by the chefs and designed to be enjoyed in Julia's cozy, private and dim atmosphere, will offer an unforgettable sensory experience.

Chef Julio Martín Baez was born in Chacabuco and studied in La Plata. He studied at the Gastronomic, Hotel and Business Association Institute in La Plata. He took his first steps in Del Consejo, Durango and Aureliano restaurants. During this time, he spent six months working as Head Chef at Estancia Harberton, which is close to Ushuaia. In 2015 he had the opportunity to work in France with Mauro Colagreco, a two-month experience in Mirazur, where he grew professionally and also learned from one of the best chefs. He also studied at Gato Dumas Culinary School, where he met Olivier Falchi, his teacher of French cuisine, for whom we would shortly afterwards work as sous chef at Le Sud, the restaurant of the former Sofitel Arroyo. He later worked with Gonzalo Aramburu at Bis, someone he also considers to be one of his masters. In 2019, Julio's dream came true: he opened his own restaurant, Julia, which he named after his daughter and which everyone is already talking about.
Marina Lis Ra, of South Korean descent, has a cultural duality which has always been part of her identity. She has worked in other restaurants before starting with the Ne Num project in February 2019, with the concept of having a restaurant inside another restaurant, which used to open every Monday at Opio Gastropub. She now has her own place which is opening this fall. Na Num is her interpretation of Korean cuisine.
