Miguel Ravago first learned to cook in his grandmother’s kitchen. Later, a stint in Mexico and a friendship with Mexican cuisine maven, Diane Kennedy, honed his classic recipes and readied him to open his own restaurant. More than thirty years later, Fonda is still a meeting place so beloved by locals that some refer to it simply as the city’s “living room.” In the heart of a neighborhood in west Austin, the restaurant’s stucco walls hold a storied collection of Mexican art and folk art—a perfect match for Ravago’s artful dishes. Serving mole (Puebla style), chili relleños (Oaxaca style), ceviche (Acapulco style), and a lavish Sunday brunch, the restaurant has taught generations of eaters that there’s more to life than Tex- Mex.
