Fodor's Review

The notoriety of this sleek Second Street eatery has only increased as of late, with founding chef Rene Ortiz, and pastry chef, Laura Sawicki, both nominated for James Beard awards in 2013. But the restaurant’s sophisticated modern Mexican cuisine has remained solid, despite a recent change of guard. (Ortiz and Sawicki left La Condesa to pursue their solo venture, Sway, in early 2014.) Diners can still expect reliable mainstays such as crispy pork shoulder carnitas tacos with black beans and tangy tomatillo-avocado salsa. And we always recommend the house ceviches (try the Acapulco), or the guacamole sampler, with varying seasonal combinations, like watermelon with queso fresco or toasted almonds and chipotle puree. The popular weekend brunch doesn’t disappoint.
