Fodor's Review

Chef-owner Gabriela Praget puts a healthful, cosmopolitan spin on Mexican fare at her restaurant. This is a great place to sample foods from around Mexico. Praget prepares all the dishes herself, and is usually on hand to greet guests. Traditional dishes like chiles en nogada (stuffed pepper in a walnut sauce) or duck in a dark, rich mole sauce (made with chocolate and chiles) share the menu with gourmet vegetarian cuisine: potato and cheese tacos, ratatouille in

puff pastry, and crêpes made with cuitlachoche (a delicious truffle-like corn fungus). The dining room—a casual covered patio decorated with plants, copies of Frida Kahlo self-portraits, several Frida dolls, and other art—is a comfortable place to enjoy a leisurely meal. Don't be alarmed by "Coco," the owner's little white rabbit that hops between the tables. A 15% service charge is automatically added to your bill and credit cards are not accepted.
