A wildly colorful, cartoonish emoji mural sets the scene for fun, fabulous Lalo, the casual-chic outpost from Chef Eduardo García (whose Máximo Bistrot is adjudged one of the finest tables in the city). Tables for two are the first to fill, so diners usually find themselves at a long, shared table, choosing from a menu of small(ish) plates that pack real flavor and cleverly blend familiar comforts with more unusual, yet equally tempting combinations. Breakfast faves include a sinful French toast or less conventional choices like pork in salsa verde; fluffy omelets contain amazing cheeses and other surprising ingredients. And don’t be shy with pastries. Lunch swings to raved-about pastas and pizzas, or the salad whose ingredients all come fresh from nearby Xochimilco. Artisanal beers and homemade sodas are a sensation as well.
