The glowing reputation of this Polish restaurant shone even brighter after people got word that the establishment had served Pope John Paul II on several of his visits to Mexico City. Settle in with starters of blini with herring paste and cucumber, dill, and cream salad, as Chopin's polonaises trill in the background. The star of the menu is a crispy, oven-baked duck stuffed with bitter apple and blueberries. Or try the roasted pork with plums and applesauce. The generous
Degustación del Papa (Pope's Menu) includes small portions of various entrées served to the pope and is only $21. Colonia Nápoles is south of La Condesa and La Roma, so the best bet is to take a sitio taxi.
