THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Aguila y Sol Restaurant Review

: This is one of the city’s most fashionable restaurants, in an airy, circular space where there are only good tables. Chef Martha Ortiz, using native ingredients, updates Mexican cuisine with international techniques and preparations. The clientele here includes businessmen in black suits, the art gallery crowd in trendy glasses and loud shirts, and the well-to-do savoring the good life. As an apéritif, the restaurant offers cocktails mixed with tropical fruit juices, such as tamarind, guava and mango. Among the most successful dishes are huazontle, an indigenous vegetable served with goat cheese in a Parmesan crust; sliced duck in a black mole sauce with fried plantains and black-bean tamales; and the grilled fish, accompanied by marinated onions and a creamy sauce of chilies, and corn-and-cheese tamales.
