new years eve-mexico city
cristina: thank you for your offer. i have "open table" reserved for new years eve at diana.---and i have reserved at monte cristo for lunch jan 2 on our way to the airport. i was a little surprised at the number of places i had hoped to eat at that were closed for the holiday period. ( many years ago we were in vienna for xmas, and i, thinking vienna was a religious city, moved us over to then communist budapest. budapest was closed tighter than a drum,--we actually couldnt get a meal- while vienna, i am told ,was swinging. so this year i chose mexico city for new years and found pujol and others closed up.) ah well--we will have a great time either way, and i suspect both diana and monte cisto will be fine.
Joeljo2, I requested information from several different Mexico City food resources, both public and private, and have been unable to come up with a list for you. As I posted before, IMHO your best bet is the Restaurante Diana at the Hotel St. Regis.
I am out of the country until Dec. 17, but I would be happy to call the St. Regis to make reservations for you and your party. Let me know if you would like me to take care of that.
