Fodor's Review

When it comes to authentic Mexican food, chef and food historian Ricardo Muñoz Zurita literally wrote the book: the Diccionario Enciclopédico de la Gastronomía Mexicana (Encyclopedia of Mexican Food). His first Mexico City restaurant, Cafe Azul y Oro, is on the national-university campus—a schlep—but he now has locations in El Centro, in the Mercado Roma food hall, and perhaps most charmingly, this Condesa outpost. Here, the refined fare is matched by a simply elegant dining room and lots of plants and natural light, all the better to showcase, say, beef drizzled in a smoky Oaxacan mole that takes three days to make, Veracruz-style fish, or ancient Mayan dishes from the Yucatán. In addition, there is always a seasonal menu highlighting cuisine from an underappreciated state of Mexico, with recipes by some of that state's star chefs, as well as Muñoz.
