DUO SALADO Y DULCE
Chic Bistro with Full Mexican Flavor
At first glance, Duo is just another one of those increasingly popular Mexico City bistros channeling a French vibe, what with its vitrine of pastries and its fancy espresso machine. But step inside and take a table, and you'll see that this café is so much more than it seems, marrying the best of French bistro food and culture with Mexican ingredients and culinary inspiration. Take, for example, the asparagus and radish sandwich or the garbanzo soup, both excellent dishes representative of the menu at large. The vibe may be Paris, but the flavor of the locally-grown and sourced ingredients don't let you forget for a second that you're in the Mexican capital.
