Lonely Planet review
This under-the-radar gem serves food from the owner Carlos’ native Durango in a rambling, art-filled art nouveau house on a quiet residential street. Book ahead if you’d like to eat out under the stars on the terrace. The menu is simple, and spoken only, so you’ll need to speak some Spanish to enjoy it here, although Carlos does speak some basic English. Try the plato combinado (combined plate; M$90) – a selection of the four main dishes served here, or content yourself with the classic chiles en nogada (stuffed poblano chilies in a walnut-pomegranate sauce). The door is unmarked – it’s on the northwest corner of Jesús and Reforma.
