Las Mercedes Review

Located a 10-minute cab ride above the city, this family-run restaurant with only six tables is in a private home with a panoramic view; for the full effect, be sure to reserve a table near the front. The food is "Mexican artisanal," updates of family recipes going back to the chef's grandmother (and the restaurant's namesake). The small, seasonal menu emphasizes meat and fish, including salmón negro served with a tangy black mole, and pollo mole verde de pistacho (chicken breast in a delicate green sauce). For dessert, don't miss the pan de elote, a warm corn cake topped with homemade caramel ice cream.
