El Raco Restaurant Review

: This Catalán restaurant in the Colonia Condesa, Mexico City’s trendiest neighborhood, is unlike many other of the area’s eateries, where you can barely hear yourself think---quiet and romantic. Also unlike many other Mexico City restaurants, it has a fairly extensive list of wines at reasonable prices, including great Spanish selections. Among the standout dishes are a sauté of artichoke hearts, mushrooms and Spanish-style ham; fideuá (similar to paella, but made with noodles instead of rice); red snapper baked in salt; and rice baked with seafood in squid ink. El Racó is rarely crowded at night, so particularly during the week it’s a fine place to go for an intimate experience.
