AAA Inspector Notes
For nearly 50 years this upscale spot has served very traditional Mexican cuisine. Dishes often incorporate pre-Hispanic ingredients such as maguey worms, escamoles (ant eggs) and huitlacoche (corn fungus), all cooked with gusto. Chiles en nogada is a flavorful main course made by stuffing green chiles with a shredded meat and fruit mixture, topped with a walnut-based sauce and pomegranate seeds. The colors of this dish resemble the Mexican flag.
