In addition to the Italian restaurant listed below, Trattoria La Genovese da Alfredo, 14a Av. "A" 3-38, Zona 1 (tel. 502/5915-3231), is also excellent and a local favorite. For excellent barbecue ribs, pulled pork, and a host of Tex-Mex specialties, head to Restaurante y Cantina Dos Tejanos, 4a Calle 12-33, Zona 1 (tel. 502/7765-4360), on the ground floor of the Pasaje Enriquez building. And for a massive menu that ranges from sushi to tacos to Thai spring rolls, you can try Casa Babylon, on the corner of 5a Calle and 13 Avenida 1 (tel. 502/7761-2320).

It's hard to beat the views from El Balcón de Enríquez, 4a Calle 12-33, Zona 1 (tel. 502/7761-4212), which I like for breakfast or a light meal. If you're looking for a light meal or simple coffeehouse, try Café La Luna, 8a Av. 4-11 (tel. 502/7761-2242), with its hodgepodge of antiques; Casa Antigua, 12a Av. 3-26, Zona 1 (tel. 502/7765-8048), with its more elegant decor; or Café Bavaria, 5a Calle 13-14, Zona 1 (tel. 502/7763-1855), which has a wonderful Sunday brunch featuring live jazz.
