BOGOTA | Segundo is part of Bogota’s successful restaurant group Takami, and sees the group create a popular bar and restaurant focused on seasonal produce, Colombian flavours, and fantastic drinks.

The large, open space is set across two elevations, with the bar separating the bar area from the dining space. Architect Santiago Muñoz utilised high ceilings, large windows, exposed brick and timber to create a space that feels modern and slick, but still welcoming. It’s one of the most visually striking restaurants in town.

Head chef and Peruvian native Adolfo Cavalié (ex Central Restaurante) has created a diverse menu with a selection of dishes that should appeal to most people. The menu is split into six sections – tapas, entrees, mains, ‘from the coal furnace’, sides, and desserts. The restaurant works with small producers to source the best produce they can, and it shows in the intensity of flavours.

Colombian chillies stuffed with crab and served over leche de tigre are fantastic, as is the beautifully charred octopus served atop a bed of flavoursome lentils, topped with charred squid ‘crackers’. The squid ink linguine, tossed with generous amounts of langoustines and togarashi, is another hit. Make sure you ask the staff for an extra serve of the house made bread to mop up the wonderful sauce at the bottom of the bowl.

Drinks are much more than an afterthought at Segundo, and the venue works well as a bar in its own right even if you’re not eating. Cocktails are fantastic, and the extensive international wine list impressive. A sommelier is on hand to help with your wine selections, and is also adept at matching cocktails to your order. Try the Cachiporra – a riff on an Irish coffee with “Irish coffee”, Jameson whiskey, cold brew coffee,
brown sugar, peppermint, and lemon.

We only visited Segundo because we noticed it a day earlier while walking by and were intrigued by the menu. We’re more than glad that we made a booking, as it ended up being one of our favourite meals in Bogota, with great food, drinks, and service in a fantastic space.
