Rivera recs?

  • 5

I was thinking of planning a night at Rivera for my gourmet club -- anyone been there lately? Would you recommend it?

Thank you!

    1. Yummy!! The chili relano was delicious!! And the salsa is amazing! But you HAVE to get the chocolate cake thingie for dessert....even if you're too full. Don't let the word "cake" fool you...It's like a slab of the richest cocoa truffle in the world, with pineapple on it.

      1. We went to luch. A few items we enjoyed:

        sopaipillas - complimentary house baked bread with citrus butter
        mussels negro, chorizo, aji amarillo-pisco broth
        shrimp and watermelon mojito salad, cucumber, mint
        poblano chile relleno salad, smoked chicken, corn, pimentón aïoli
        jamón ibérico de bellota pata negra
        open-face tacos de pescado

        desserts:

        chocolate torte, drunken pineapple
        mexico city caramel sundae
        olive oil cake, creme fraiche ice cream, strawberry sorbet

        1. These are all great recs, but I especially have to second Adsvino's rec for the cocktails. They are incredible. My favorite is the purple rain. Probably my favorite cocktail in the whole city.
