Litoral Restaurant Review

: In the heart of the Colonia Condesa, Litoral seems as much like the setting for a supermodel audition as it does a restaurant, but the Mediterranean-Mexican fusion fare is not an afterthought. The menu covers quite a gamut though limits itself to a few items in a broad range of categories, and ultimately, seafood is the star here. Salmon tournedos in traditional mole are a nice change of pace and an order of deep-fried crab taquitos is a good group starter, served with a clean, kicky salsa and homemade guacamole. “Robalo Juan,” a sea bass specialty, comes in a delicate sauce of mushrooms, green chilies, garlic and onion. Non-fish-eaters and vegetable fans can find options, too: the rack of lamb, for instance, is hearty without being gamy, and comes with mint jelly. Tables are close together on two levels creating an audible buzz and a sexy, Manhattan feel, and sidewalk tables are desirable on pleasant afternoons.
