DF Dilemma: Selecting a Spanish Restaurant

Anonimo | Jun 18, 2012 04:34 AM

I know that I am somewhat obsessed with Spanish restaurants in Mexico City. We will soon be spending a couple of nights in Colonia Roma Norte, and want to dine at a good Spanish restaurant. It's our anniversary and so we want it to be really good. In my web research, I have come up with several candidates, none of which are very far from where we'll be staying. We'd prefer not to travel far to dinner. Quiet and romantic are other desirable attributes. We are looking at Saturday, June 23 for this dinner.

The candidates are as follows:
El Racó, Av. Sonora. We were there two years ago and were pleased overall. However, the seasonal dishes page on the website hasn't changed since then. That may be unimportant. Maybe the website just hasn't been updated.

Txakoli, on Avenida Colima. I think it used to be Guria: I have looked at their menu on line, and it has some attractive options, but I don't have a sense of the quality.

Centro Gallego, also on Av. Colima: a huge, imposing edifice with a Galician restaurant. The menu is appealing, but I don't have any reports from any one who has eaten there.

Finally, Casa Gallega, on Av. Cuahtémoc, Colonia Doctores. Spiffy looking place, but features a seafood buffet on weekends. That to us is not an attraction.
