One of the grooviest eateries in the city, La Capital channels the 1960s and 70s in its look and vibe (you'll love the kitschy wall art). And that's because this is really a place to party. Unlike many other restaurants in Condesa, it's spacious with a sizable bar, a terrace for smokers (there's an outdoor area for non-smokers as well), and indoor dining that seats up to 150, making it perfect for large groups. The menu is simple and ranges from steaks to some pastas, but the focus is on Mexican classics such as chicken mole, tacos, ceviches, and enchiladas. Order a bunch of the appetizers to share and a round (or three) of the excellent and creative cocktails the bar is shaking up. The restaurant sits near the start of "restaurant row" on Condesa's Avenida Nuevo León.
