The name brings to mind all sorts of things, but it's really an abbreviation for denominación de origen, or the official region from which a particular food comes in Spain. This place is serious about its food, which is why the servers carve a leg of Iberian ham right in the front window. This salty cured ham is sometimes eaten alone, or just as often in dishes such as ensalada de higos con jamón ibérico, a salad that includes sweet figs and tangy goat cheese. Main dishes are mostly updates of traditional recipes, so there's pescado a la sal (fish baked in a salty crust) and risotto de abulón y morillas (a saffron-scented risotto with abalone and black mushrooms). During the day, the glass-walled dining room is filled with same-sex groupings: businessmen in expensive suits at one table, scarf-wearing ladies who lunch at the next. In the evening, soft lighting transforms it into a popular spot for young lovers. A more intimate space is the bar, a long slab of orange glass lit from below. It's a great place to sample wines from Spain, Mexico (a rarity, even in Mexico City eateries), and the rest of Latin America.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 1 to 11:30 pm, Sundays 1 to 5 pm.
