Jean George Steakhouse at the St. Regis
Will be going to the DF during Easter week. Planning on going to Dulce Patria, Pujol,
Azul Condesa, and Bajio or Fonda El Refugio . Am considering going to the Jean George
restaurant at the St Regis, any thoughts. Is it worthwhile?
As a side-note, what is the typical hour for dinner in the DF? Are the dining hours more like
the ones in Spain(i.e. late)?
Dulce Patria is the completely worthy heir to Aguila y Sol. I was there this past Thursday, Mar. 8. Do NOT miss it.
Azul Histórico is a more attractive space than Azul Condesa; the menus are identical. Both are marvelous.
The wonderfully traditional El Bajío definitely trumps Fonda El Refugio.
The St. Regis has recently changed chefs. I haven't been there with the new man on board.
Breakfast at El Cardenal in the Hilton Hotel Alameda is a do-not-miss.
If when you say 'dinner' you mean a full-on evening meal (cena), then yes, late. I would say 9PM at the earliest. If when you say 'dinner' you mean 'comida', Mexico's main meal of the day, then 3PM.
El Bajío is not open at night, so you would want to go there for comida.
