nouveau Mexican in Puebla?

I lived in Puebla a few years ago and eat pretty much street food and comida corrida due to my budget. Of course that is delicious but I'm going back now and I want to splurge. Last year I went to the La Tecla in Mexico City and thought it was ok, but now I want to know about fine dining in Puebla. Also, I checked out the Meson Sacristia online and thought their menu looked too traditional for my preferences.

Could somebody recommend a place in Puebla to enjoy a nice lunch that is more nouveau Mexican? I want amazing flavors and using an interesting combination of traditional ingredients. Something like Pujol in Mexico City. I understand Puebla might not have the same level as Mexico City, but just trying to be specific.

  1. La Casa de los Muñecos restaurant is a nice place for lunch and it is centrally located -- 2 Norte No. 2, Centro Historico. It is housed in the beautiful 18th century Casa de los Muñecos, which also contains the Museo Universitario.

    Monday I had lunch there -- Avocado salad with apples, hearts of palm, pecans, and a delicious ranch dressing; Salmon in a passion fruit sauce with apple, and rice with strawberries and cherries. The salmon was cooked as I like it - medium rare and the presentation was beautiful. The service was good and the prices reasonable.

    1. The restaurant at the Camino Real is a wonderful place for lunch, I think it's one of the most beautiful hotels in Mexico.

      1. La Purificadora next to the convention centre great food service and an awesome setting
