Concierge.com's insider take:
The jury's still out on star chef Eduardo Osuna's elegant San Miguel restaurant. It's certainly well dressed, with several dining rooms filled with linen-draped tables awaiting diners. The wine list is impressive, the service attentive, and the menu ambitious. But San Miguel's resident gourmands are slow to accept outsiders charging Mexico City prices. Still, Osuna's smoked marlin tacos, osso buco with chiles, and pork in beer sauce are well prepared and beautifully plated. Skip the grilled meats and go for Mexican specialties like charales (tiny fried fish), the salsas and guacamole prepared tableside, chicken in mole poblano served with plantains, and a fragrant, tasty pescado Veracruzano. Plan on a special night out and a pricey tab.—Maribeth Mellin
