We were blown away by a couple of trips to Astrid y Gaston in Lima and over time have been sampling various outposts of the chain in other cities--Madrid, Buenos Aires and now Mexico City. Our out-of-Lima experiences have varied, but we came away happy in Mexico City. The room and the service take the top honors. It's big, modern and well-appointed with a main dining room that leads seamlessly to a covered patio. We were on the patio where a big fireplace supplied just enough warmth. The staff was great. I opted to proceed in Spanish and they kept to their end of the bargain with good humor. The food? We went for the basic test dishes: ceviche and lomo saltado. Both were satisfying while lacking a little something in execution. Even so we had a great time and would return to this one without hesitation.
