Come gather at ‘acopio’ – our new restaurant in Zihuatanejo. The same breathtaking view but with a whole new menu. Vacations are a great way to bring together friends and family but we often split up during the day to explore our own interests, making mealtime all the more important. There’s something comforting about eating as a group – the routine, the enjoyment of delicious food and wine and of course the wonderful company and conversation. It’s these little moments that make a vacation unforgettable. Introducing acopio – the new restaurant at Club Intrawest — Zihuatanejo. Listening to Member feedback, we knew it was paramount to create a menu that offered both quality and value. The word acopio is Spanish for ‘gathering’ and was carefully chosen for its multiple meanings. Dinner is a time to come together and celebrate the local culture. Think of acopio as a place where the freshest, local ingredients are gathered to create meals that are approachable and affordable. We want acopio to be your restaurant. Unpretentious, familiar, welcoming – acopio is a place to bring your family for a casual but memorable meal. The layout and design of the space has stayed the same (how could we mess with that view!), but you’ll notice the whole experience has changed. We’re less focused on fine dining and more on creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. Chef Mario has created a menu that will appeal to everyone. From local delicacies to the tried and true burger, from seafood to steak – the meals are simple, fresh, flavorful and delicious. We look forward to seeing you at acopio and creating an experience you’ll always remember. To learn more about acopio and view the menus visit the Member Web site.
Mario Ramirez (Head Chef, acopio) Born and raised in Zihuatanejo, Chef Mario has studied Culinary Arts in Mexico City, New York and Zihuatanejo. He has worked at Kaukan, Amuleto and was the head chef at Tentaciones for the past seven years. On his days off he can often be found at Playa Blanca, a quiet beach just outside the city.
Yesenia Pimental (General Manager, acopio) You may recognize Yesenia, she worked at Zi Restaurant for a number of years before leaving to go to Casa que Canta next door. We couldn’t be happier to have her back! She is very excited about the new casual concept and the wide variety on the menu. “It’s so fresh. Members will love it.”
