    A very good place is Les Moustaches, if it still exists. I don't remember the street, but it is maybe a couple blocks away from the American Embassy and the Sheraton and Towers Hotel in Reforma.

        I've been to Fouquet's in Paris and there was one in Mexico City. If it's still there, it's sumptuous.

      I have heard good comments from close friends about two restaurants 1- Au Pied de Cochon, Hotel Presidente Intercontinental, Polanco. 2- Le Petit Resto, Ave. San Antonio 100, Colonia Nápoles, this one is samll and casual.... Does anyone has been to Les Moustaches lately? It´s has a long tradition...I´ve been to Le Bistrot Littéraire at La Librería Francesa, Colonia San Angel, and I had a very good time. I´ve been also to Mosaico in Condesa, close to Especia...maybe it has to do with my order, but it seems to me like if i had been to a Spanish restaurant....my memories of Mosaico are lot´s of olive oil, garlic, toast, red wine...

        I have only been living here a couple of months, but I know and like the food at Le Bouchon in Polanco very much. Bistrot Mosaico (there are 5 or 6 of them around town owned by the same people who own Champs d'Elysee...a super-serious and formal French restaurant on Reforma that I don't like that much...mostly for the formality, food isn't bad) is French with a Mexican twist and always pleasant.

            I like the one in Condesa for personal convenience, but the one in San Angel is in a beautiful location/building. I haven't had foie at any Mosacio and I have at Le Bouchon, where it is truly excellent.
