The new location is next door to La Biznaga. It's a dazzling, contemporary styled space, with a long list of mezcales inscribed on the tall, white wall.
|Food menu-there's more but not shown here|
|The brown, ground stuff is fish. Surprisingly good!|
|Molito de Camaron|
|Sopa de Frijol|
The platos fuertes were a mixed success and a failure.
I ordered Cochito Horneado, interested in comparing it with a dish I'd recently made myself. This oven baked pork dish was good in a homey way, but nothing extraordinary.
|Cochito and Mashed Potatoes with Vegetables|
Doña Cuevas did not fare well with her Estofado de Res con Frutas. I was dismayed by the appearance and texture of the stuff on her plate. (I would have sent it back, but she is more accepting than I.)
It was a flattened blob of brown pulp, like a reheated leftover, as from our freezer, of last month's stew. This is the sort of thing we might possibly eat at home, but for a restaurant to offer it is unacceptable.
|Estofado de Res con Frutas. A simple salad.|
To send out food in such poor condition is unacceptable to me, and I would not recommend the restaurant, except possibly for drinks and antojitos. We would not go back.
