MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

It might be French-owned (neighboring bistro Chez Maman is a sibling), but Papito is appealingly Mexican, as your first bite of the outstanding shrimp tacos, piled with spicy adobo and sweet mango salsa, will attest. An ear of caramelized, grilled corn slathered in spicy mayo, lime juice and Cotija cheese will transport you to the streets of CDMX, while the smoky coloradito sauce that bathes tender chicken enchiladas will have you scraping your plate for more. Papito’s flavors are big, but its space is no more than a shoebox, so be prepared to wait or take your order to-go. If you dine in, the vibrant look matches the energetic food, with bright walls and a bustling side bar. Note: Hayes Valley's Papito, once a satellite, now has different owners.
