One of Ajijic’s best restaurants is closing it’s doors September 2nd, 2014 which saddens manyAjijic residents.
The name of this restaurant is Number FOUR and I was lucky enough to be at the opening May 31st, 2008.
Number FOUR is a high end restaurant that has had many wonderful chefs over the years including Glenroy Anderson and Toronto’s sweetheart and spice genius, Greg Couillard.
Kim Everest is the owner of Number FOUR and will be opening a restaurant in Toronto, Canada called “Cuatro” which will be a Mexican restaurant.
Until closing Number FOUR will be open Friday to Tuesday with live music on Fridays, Saturdays, Mondays and Tuesays.
New chefs Randal Harrison and Liliana Ojeda Martinez will be cooking up Number FOUR’s renowned top-notch food.
The team of Toronto natives that put Nuber FOUR on the map in Ajijic, Kim Everest, and chefs Glenroy Anderson and Greg Couillard will be returning to their home city to open a traditional Mexican cuisine hot-spot called Cuatro. They plan to serve many of the innovative fusion dishes that were so popular in Ajijic.
Also joining them will be Mexican chef Liliana Ojeda, bartender Danny Garcia and floor manager and kitchen prep whiz, Julio Ramirez to Canada to add authenticity and maintain the thread of magic they created at Number FOUR.
Kim wants her loyal clientele that she is working hard to bring a great new restaurant from Guadalajara to take over the location.
Anyone local that may be interested in talking to Kim about the restaurant location now would be the time.
Tuesday nights at FOUR will feature Galen on the piano, vocals by Kimmie Everest and guests, August 12th, 19th, 26th and the final night September 2nd. Band starts at 7:00 pm for dinner dancing with a cover of $50.00 pesos. For reservations please call (376) 766-1360. Located at Donato Guerra #4 in Ajijic.

We were there last night and will be their with good friends August 23rd and, of course, we will be there for the bittersweet closing September 2nd as will many of Kim’s loyal followers.
We want to thank Kim and her team for an amazing 6 years of excellent fine dining and let her know how very much she will be missed.
Ajijic’s loss is indeed Toronto’s gain. We wish “Cuatro” all the best for a successful future with continued fine dining for your guests.
We will miss you, Kim, and our special table 401 where we have enjoyed numerous delicisous meals with our best friends over the last 6 years. Thank you for all you brought to Ajijic, Lake Chapala.
