My first day in Mexico City I headed straight to Azul Historico, one of my favorite restaurants. It was a Saturday late afternoon. The rooftop terrace, attached to the adjacent Hotel Downtown, was booming a combo of rock and Latin music. There was a party and because the restaurant is in the open courtyard on the ground floor, I was entertained by the parade of Chilangos, wealthy young Mexico City dudes and dudesses all deck out in slicked back hair and skirts short enough to just about show their pupicks. If you can put the music in the background or hit the restaurant mid-week instead, you'll enjoy your meal. Prices compare to the U.S. -- on the high side. A glass of decent red wine is about $12 USD. This week the menu featured Guanajuato cuisine. Pork dishes are always great. Skip the pear and rocquefort salad -- too much pear and not enough lettuce. For grilled fish, I've had better at El Cardenal for less money.

Azul was recommended to us. It took us awhile to find as it is set back inside from the street. You walk through a very old set of doors into an internal quadrangle with trees and refurbished shops and small restaurants around outer. Food menu was interesting, but great. Service was fantastic. We enjoyed our lunch, prices were OK and no problem with language. Worth a try.

big fyi: if you order a margarita, ask which ones are made with actual fruit!!!!! so many nice places in mexico use liquid flavoring for their drinks which is a big no no in my book, especially in mexico.

the mole is great as is the cricket guacamole

also, the caesar salad is a must. i think it comes from mexico but i could be wrong.

I had two meals here in two days. The atmosphere is awesome and the food quite good and a little different. I didn't love the ceviche and thought my quesadilla was tiny but the soup was fantastic and the drinks were perfect. A great stop when shopping.

This is a great restaurant chain, no doubt, but the downtown location is in an open courtyard surrounded by hotel and hostal, and shops, meaning lots of hustle and bustle. For the cost, I would opt for something more intimate and elegant, perhaps one of the other branches in Condesa for example. But overall a good meal, though expensive, but of course we had appetizers, mezcal, wine and a couple of desserts. Per couple with tip: 1331 pesos.
