Hi! We are a couple, both 30, celebrating our engagement. We are staying at the Condesa DF and have vacationed in Mexico City before. We visited Fonda del Refugio (sadly, not as great as it used to be) and Bellinghausen, and had dinner at Izote (amaaaazing but a bit sterile ambiance) and at asian-mexican fusion Bistro MP by Monica Patino (great food, but seeking a change of pace!). We also had a wonderful brunch at one of our all time faves, Mama Rosa in Condesa.
We'd like to have dinner at the hottest, must-hit restaurant. I currently have reservations at Aguila y Sol but am not sure if we've made the right choice. We're ready to work within a large budget since we're celebrating but want it to really knock our socks off and typify the resurgence of amazing Mexican alta cocina. Other options include El Bajio, and Taberna del Leon, but I read something about the mall location being a downer.
We are looking for a fun, hip restaurant scene good for a 9 PM dinner after a day of hitting the pyramids and zocalo and sightseeing.
Does anyone have any other recommendations for us? We love Mexican food and love hunting down an end-all-be-all meal. We're happy to stay at our fun little hotel for drinks etc... but if anyone could pinpoint a must-hit dinner place for us I would GREATLY appreciate it!!
