Fodor's Expert Review Hostería de Santo Domingo
This genteel institution near downtown's Plaza Santo Domingo has been serving colonial dishes in a delightful town house since 1860, making it one of the oldest restaurants in the city. Feast on shrimp-stuffed fish, house-made chorizo, hearty puchero stew (of pork, chicken, chickpeas, and corn), and the house specialty, chiles en nogada (stuffed poblano chilies bathed in a creamy walnut sauce). This is a great place for a boozy lunch, with options ranging from wine to whiskies to tequilas and mezcals. The place is open for breakfast and is always full at lunch, with live music from 3 to 10:30.
