I've been through the archives and pulled together the following list from a bunch of older posts. Any updates, comments, recommendations, warnings? We're pretty adventurous eaters, from Boston and New York, and price isn't going to be a major concern for this vacation, but good food (of course!) is.

La Nacional (local northeast mexican food)
Pacifica (seafood)
El Tio (traditional family food)
Gran San Carlos or El Rey del Cabrito (cabrito al pastor)
La Catarina (Mexican Gourmet Restaurant with a large selection of wines and tequilas)
Pangea (French Fusion)
Casa Grande (Mexican Food)
Guacamaya (Gourmet en Mexican Food)
Los Arcos (Mexican style Sea Food, try the aguachiles)
SeƱor Tanaka (Gourmet Japanese, don't go with out reservation)
Louisana (Gourmet)
El Gaucho (argentinean food, GREAT meat)

Foods to look for: cabrito, guacamole, queso con chorizo, atropellado, machacado, taco azul, tacos de trompo, bistek, barbacoa, chicharron,or arrachera, turcos(meat empanadas)
