When you have spent a number of days vacationing in Guadalajara the local Mexican menus all begin to look and taste the same, This little gem tucked into the area around the University of Guadalajara is a wonderfully french change of pace. We walked along Ave. Jaurez from our hotel on the corner of Jaurez and Federalisimo and enjoyed looking in the windows of all the bridal shops along the way. The restaurant is on the ground floor of a modern building one block north on Pedro Moreno just off Enrique Diaz de Leon Sur. It is modestly and modernly decorated but the small tables, color scheme and high brick ceiling make a lovely romantic setting. Tables are well space. We started with the chef's special appetizer, asparagus with parma ham and a buere blanc sauce. The asparagus was perfectly cooked and the sauce was subtly delicious. We flowed with the crochette of chicken and mushrooms and the house specialty, canard d'loronge. Both were excellent. The duck was accompanied by small slices of poached pear and a julienne medley of vegetables.The flavors were layered, none over powering the other and the duck cooked a perfect medium with a small layer of fat beautifully seared. The attractive and well groomed servers were fluent in English and .very attentive. We finished the evening with one of the best creme brullie I've ever eaten, a nutella crepe and capachinos. A touch of flaming tequila added a delicate hint of flavor to the creme brullie This is a must go to restaurant if you are staying in the centro historic district. 610 pesos (50$) with two glasses of wine and tip.
