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.
