This all but plain-jane spot—in a neighborhood “no one” knows—is in fact among the most delightful lunches in the city, the project of architect-turned-chef Gerardo Vásquez Lugo, who decided to take the neighborhood restaurant his parents had run for decades to the next culinary level, yet without ever losing touch with his roots. Queen Bee hostess Yolanda and the waitstaff make sure every diner feels special, with plenty of talk about what’s fresh this season—and what’s so good it’s about to run out. Items on offer cover everything from refined versions of street classics to exquisite, almost exotic, wild-game preparations whose recipes come from some of Mexico’s remotest corners. Live music and an excellent mescal cart sweeten the already delicious deal.
