Hacienda de los Morales (Local/Contemporary)
Vázquez de Mella 525, Col. Del Bosque, in Polanco area, Mexico City
A romantic retreat into the suburbs, set within a large colonial estate dating back to the 16th century, very reminiscent of the Spanish rule with its dark timber beams, terra cotta tiling, and dramatically placed torches that illuminate the nighttime ambience. Music starts playing after 8 pm, making it the perfect dinner venue.
Specials on the menu include walnut soup for starters and duck and chicken dishes. Cocktails are served at a rustic tequila bar which offers over 200 labels.
