Entrevero Restaurant Review: The Coyoacán area of Mexico City, with its colonial architecture and cobblestoned streets, is one of the loveliest and most frequently visited by tourists. Unfortunately, its panorama of restaurants is inadequate and not very inspiring. Entrevero, which faces Jardín Centenario, the area’s central square, is one of the neighborhood’s best choices, although given the limits, this isn’t saying much. Entrevero serves Uruguayan food, and for the uninitiated, the menu is almost identical to an Argentine steakhouse. There are the requisite empanadas, stuffed with meat or cheese, and appetizers of grilled provoleta cheese or matahambre (rolled beef stuffed with vegetables and hard-boiled eggs). Pastas include gnocchi in a perhaps overly rich and creamy Gorgonzola sauce, or capelletti Caruso (angel hair pasta with ricotta in a creamy mushroom sauce). The standard cuts of beef are all available, such as bife de lomo (sirloin tip) and tira de asado (short ribs). There are various fresh salads, as well as pizzas topped with goat cheese and olives, or imported salami.
