What a pleasure to eat fine food in Mexico City without an army of obsequious waiters stumbling over each other. The setting is spare and yet even with a full house the room wasn't excessively noisy.
This is a chef and market driven restaurant with a limited menu, changing daily. The chef sources much of his ingredients locally and frequently organically, including the wines. Slipping in without a reservation before the rush, I found the staff and service professional yet friendly and welcoming. I had a lovely rare duck breast, with a citrus gastric on a bright purple bed of pureed camote with a glass of Cote du Rhone. For dessert I tried a clarfouti of red fruits, which was more cake-like than the traditional French version but very good, served with a dollop of fresh whipped cream.
While the stripped down decor is simply elegant, some seat cushions would be appreciated. The food invites lingering, the chairs not so much.
