Best Mexican Restaurant - 2008
Mexico DF - CLOSED
For those interested in Mexican cooking beyond the burrito, there's no better place to explore than the lively, stylish Mexico DF. Don't-miss dishes that issue from the open kitchen include the three-ceviche assortment, which might include mahimahi, scallops and octopus, and ahi tuna, all treated to a bath in different blendings of citrus juice and aromatics; astonishingly good pork carnitas; cactus salad; goat, served as grilled ribs or shredded in tacos barbacoa-style; whole roasted petrale sole in garlic sauce; and sautéed fresh corn, in season. To complement the sophisticated fresh food, there's an interesting international wine list in addition to a number of margaritas and other cocktails.
