Maximo Bistrot Local - México, DF - Restaurant Report

gueraaven | Feb 2, 2012 03:27 PM

Happy camper! Fresh, local, and a few blocks away, Maximo Bistrot is going to compete with MeroToro for my new go-to meal out. I'm so excited to see a restaurant using local, organic food with a clean, flavorful, creative, and well-edited menu! I was about to cry if I saw another adorable new restaurant with the same old tuna tartare, lasagne, and sad cut of beef with some sauce on it. Ick. Maximo has made my day. The restaurant is warm, cozy, and oozing with flavor.

My dining partner had red grouper with fresh peas and a flor de calabaza puree. I had lechón with potato gnocchi, cauliflower and cauliflower puree. All total there were four entrees and about six appetizers on the menu - some other dishes were chocolata clams and red snapper. We finished with a version of a raspberry millefeuille and a strawberry rhubarb crumble. First time I've seen ruibarbo on the menu anywhere, and as a fan I was thrilled.

Entrees were between $180-$200 and wine by the glass was between $60-110. I had a decent red organic wine from France.

Reservations recommended from the crowd I saw mid-week
