      Has Aguila y Sol reopened? Last I heard, it closed about two years ago.

        Aguila y Sol closed more than two years ago and has not re-opened.

          The woman who "developed" Aguila y Sol seems to have opened a new restaurant inside a boutique hotel, Las Alcobas, in Polanco. Has anyone been?

            I heard from Martha Ortiz's folks last month; they said Dulce Patria was scheduled to open during the third week in May.

          Thank you for the suggestion. I went to Biko Monday evening. Food and service were excellent. While the Spanish influence often dominates, local ingredients and Mexican flavors are clear in each plate. I would definitely return.

            Good! I´m glad you had a good time.

        3. Well, "best dining experience" is going to be defined differently, depending upon who's offering the commentary. What is it you really want? Most expensive doesn't always equate - probably not "usually" - to the "best dining experience." There are so many other factors that come into play. Personal preferences and/or expectations are as important as who the chef is or where the location is or what the ultimate price tag will be. There are many prior discussions of experiences people have had across the broad spectrums of price and other factors, are there any/some which have particularly interested you? Thanks
