From Eduardo Martinez, the agronomist chef of cult restaurant Mini-mal (who knows more about what’s edible in Colombia than anyone else), El Panóptico is set in the brick-walled building of the same name, which happens to house the Museo Nacional. It’s a laidback, light-filled space, offering one of the most interesting menus with some of the hardest-to-find ingredients in the city. Recipes come from grandmothers in rural villages and from indigenous Amazonian groups. You might find chicken braised in ají negro, a fermented yuca broth, or guatilla (chayote) thinly sliced as carpaccio. The juice selection is one of the best in the city.
