Lonely Planet review
Back in the day, the far-flung location of this Mexican stalwart was much appreciated by philandering husbands. The shady regulars may have gone, but the old-school charm remains, from the beveled candleholders and dapper Latino waiters to the satisfying south-of-the-border standbys.
House classics include the mejillones al vino (mussels in red wine, cilantro and garlic, served with green chili corn bread), and the signature mole poblano (chicken stewed in a rich chili-and-chocolate-spiked sauce). End the night with a shot of the homemade pineapple tequila.
