Dulce Patria, Mexico City

Large arrow left

The author of a half dozen Mexican cookbooks and former owner of such lauded Mexico City restaurants as Águila y Sol, chef Martha Ortiz Chapa opened Dulce Patria in 2011. The daughter of an artist, Chapa prepares modern Mexican fare—from squash blossom and pine nut quesadillas to a tomato salad seasoned with the native epazote herb and grasshoppers—with attention to the smallest details. Tortillas come hand-pressed with violet pansies, and glorias (milk candies) and other sweets are served in colorful wooden toy trucks and carousels.
Anatole France 100, Polanco, 52/(01) 55-3300-3999.
