This is one of Mexico City’s hot spots to see-and-be-seen, where important business deals are made and the city's beautiful people come to dine. The setting is perfect for people-watching while taking in a tasty meal—the loft-like space is wide open with high ceilings, wide-planked wooden floors, and tables set far enough apart for private conversations. Don't just come to gawk, though: only those with a reservation get past the reception in the foyer. As for the food, it's largely Spanish with tapas and several types of paellas along with ceviches and a few pizzas and pastas delivered with a Spanish twist. Of course, tomatoes are served in all forms and varieties. The tomato tartar is a wonderful mix of perfectly seasoned tomatoes and avocados. The chicaron de pulpo (fried octopus) is another favorite on the menu as is their fruit mojito and the ginger martini, a house original.
