MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Patience is a virtue at this fun, festive and ultra-popular Mexican destination. Can they help it if they’re packed most nights? Chef José Andrés knows his food and the loyal crowds here bear testament. Snag a seat at the entertaining ceviche bar and guzzle thirst-quenching drinks while snacking on small plates.

The kitchen's dedication to technique and ingredients is clear, with a particular penchant for south-of-the-border cuisine like huevos enfrijoladas, crispy chilaquiles and gorditas topped with Hudson Valley duck confit. Don’t miss the tarasca estilo pátzcuaro though, an otherworldly black bean soup with avocado leaves, swirls of crema and crumbled cotija. The lunch special, which the menu refers to as “Almuerzo Rápido,” is a steal at $20.
