Star restaurateur Gabriela Cámara's "beach food" shack in Colonia Roma is casually decorated to remind you of a palm-thatched palapa. The menu, though, is more refined than you might expect: The signature tuna sashimi tostadas are served with chipotle sauce and braised leeks, and the pescado a la talla—grilled fish of the day—is smothered half in green sauce (parsley and garlic) and half in red (chile and achiote). It's so hip, you'll probably see D.F.'s number one heartthrob, Gael García Bernal—as long as you don't try to come for dinner. Until further notice, only lunch is served, which around here means 1:30 to 6:30 pm.

Open daily 1:30 to 6:30 pm.
