Fodor's Review

Discreetly located on bustling Avenida Bonampak, this hidden gem created by Chef Alain Grimond and his wife, Sonya, has an intimate dinner-party feel. Doubling as a gallery, the dining room features modern art, a grand piano, red velvet chairs, and a crystal chandelier that casts spectrums of light onto the ceiling. Accommodating only 20 guests per evening, duMexique is a dream come true for foodies, as Chef Alain utilizes his 55 years of culinary experience to prepare each dish with passion. The French menu (featuring five appetizers, five entrées, and four desserts) changes daily; selections might include foie gras, duckling with risotto, or entrecôte with wine sauce. By calling ahead, you can request soufflé de huitlacoche, a delicacy made from mushrooms that grow on cornstalks. The crème brûlée is magnifique! Visit the kitchen, where the master chef's awards are displayed.
