If you are watching Mexico City, looking for the next neighborhood to burst onto the food scene, then train your eyes on Colonia Juarez. In addition to its great location and beautiful architecture, Juarez is showing the first signs of its not-so-distant future as one of the city's hippest (and most delicious) hoods. Here's what we suggest for tasting some of its best.
A few well-known chefs have already staked their claim in Colonia Juarez. Eduardo Garcia of Maximo Bistrot fame, opened his French bistrot Havre 77 (pictured above) and its adjoining oyster bar to rave reviews. You can get escargot and foie gras or a gourmet set lunch with five or six delicious courses like carrot-ginger soup or oysters on the half shell. Garcia also designed the menu at De Mar a Mar, an clapboard seafood joint with classic seafood delicacies like ceviches and tirados, fish tacos, and chowders.
