Fodor's Expert Review El Tajín

$$ Coyoacán Mexican

Named after El Tajín pyramid in Veracruz State, and a longtime proponent of the "slow food" movement, this elegant lunch spot sizzles with pre-Hispanic influences. Innovative appetizers include chilpachole, a delicate crab-and-chili soup with epazote, while main dishes could include octopus cooked in its own ink. Prices are quite moderate for this caliber of cooking, and there's an impressive wine list to boot. Spacious and relaxing, with a garden for children to play in, the place has an excellent vibe. Ancient Huastecan faces grinning from a splashing fountain add a bit of levity to the dining experience.
