Fodor's Review

Two prominent Mexico City society columnists own this downtown spot. Los Girasoles (which means "sunflowers") overlooks a lovely old square in a restored three-story colonial home. It was one of the first places to serve nueva cocina mexicana, and there are also pre-Hispanic delicacies such as escamoles (ant eggs), gusanos de maguey (chilied grubs), and mini chapulines (tiny, crispy, fried grasshoppers). It closes at 9 pm on Sunday and Monday, but is open till midnight the rest of the week.
