Upscale Lunch Restaurant at the Beach, Jose Ignacio
A little over a year ago, Mallmann returned to José Ignacio and opened a beach restaurant with an open kitchen, Chiringuito Francis Mallmann. Inspired by the seaside scenes in Luchino Visconti’s Death in Venice, Mallmann created a space covered only by umbrellas and striped fabric awnings, with folding hammocks and low wooden tables directly on the sand. “I’m very fond of José Ignacio,” he says, “and I’m delighted to have been able to return to the beach at a time when getting out and breathing fresh air is so necessary.
