Fodor's See It Mexico, 3rd Edition
Los Girasoles Review
Two prominent Mexico City society columnists own this downtown spot. Los Girasoles (which means "sunflowers") is on 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 worms), and mini chapulines (tiny, crispy, fried grasshoppers). Be aware that you will be charged for the bread and spreads if you eat them—it's better to wait for your more interesting main course. It closes at 9 pm on Sunday and Monday, but is open till midnight the rest of the week.
