Mexico City, Mexico

With Lardo, celebrated chef Elena Reygadas (Rosetta, Panadería Rosetta, Bella Aurora, Café Nin, Mesa) brings her signature style—simple dishes, featuring quality ingredients, made with integrity—to the hip Condesa neighbourhood. Located a few blocks from Chapultepec park and with a focus on Italian-Mediterranean cuisine, the casual space feels reminiscent of old European cafés thanks to an abundance of reclaimed wood and vintage café chairs. Due to Reygadas’s mastery of baked goods, Lardo is busiest (and best) for breakfast and lunch when pastries and crusty sandwiches steal the show - pastries are also available for quick pickup at the bakery counter near the entrance. But, sitting at the bar with a glass of wine during aperitivo hour, where you can get a front-row view of the action happening in the open kitchen as wood-fired pizzas and fresh leafy salads are assembled, is never a bad idea.
