Concierge.com's insider take:
While lots of eateries in La Condesa strive to outdo one another with daring decor or flamboyantly overprepared dishes, Litoral's approach is refreshingly straightforward. It occupies an uncluttered, loftlike space, and serves simple, elegant food (meaning you'll never have trouble identifying what's on your plate). The specialty here is seafood: Grilled octopus comes on skewers; shrimp arrives atop strips of fried blue tortillas. It's especially appealing for lunch, when one of the choice tables by the massive windows gives you a view of the passing parade of young fashion victims and older well-heeled types.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 1:30 pm to 1 am, Sundays 1:30 to 10 pm.
