Tel: 52 415 154 9102's insider take:

Famous for its crisp, sugary churros and hand-whipped chocolate, this popular colonial-era restaurant also serves some mean enchiladas suizas, tortilla soup, and chile rellenos. Try the calabaza (squash flowers) crêpes and, in season, crepas con huitlacoche (similar to a dark truffle). Owner and Argentine actress Margarita Gralia, star of Mexican telenovelas and a past model for the Spanish-language Playboy, can often be spotted cleaning tables or chatting with distinguished men and sharing a bottle of vino tinto in the late afternoon. Lines are so long on weekends that bouncers literally drop the velvet rope when a table opens.—Maribeth Mellin

Open Sundays through Thursdays 8 am to 11 pm, Fridays and Saturdays 9 am to midnight.
