Fodor's Review

The specialty at this Mexican stunner is antojitos, literally translated as "little dishes from the streets." But the high ceilings, gracious service, and gorgeous Frida Kahlo–inspired interior are anything but street, and even the smallest of dishes is bigger than life when doused with chocolatey mole poblano sauce or piquant lime-cilantro dressing. Standouts include house-made margaritas topped with a clever salt foam, the Veracruz cod in a hearty olive-tomato

confit, and grasshopper tacos—yes, those are bugs basted in tequila and chile sauce... and they're delightful. Museumgoers shouldn't miss the filling and fanciful lunch specials.
