Located in the heart of the city, Limosneros' walls have stood over four centuries as one of Mexico City’s oldest manors. Nowadays, the colonial structure serves as the background of a modern restaurant that surprises its guests with the blend of old and new in every detail.
Those modern stone light fixtures are made from a traditional stone used to grind ingredients and make sauces. Other decorations include tequila shot glasses, blown glass from Tonala and Huichol indigenous art.
The “past meets present” theme can be traced back to the food as well. Limosneros takes traditional recipes and interprets them—only Mexican ingredients allowed—to create original dishes. Order the stellar mutton with mixiote sauce (don’t worry it’s not that spicy). It is accompanied with onion and slices of nopal with panela cheese. To top it off, you can try a very rare, intense, and special mezcal called cupreata.
