Before there was Contramar, there was Danubio—a nearly 90-year-old, super popular seafood restaurant in Centro Histórico that happens to be just a seven-minute walk from the Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes. It’s a fairly traditional spot, with white tablecloths, framed autographs of famous patrons from the ‘80s and ‘90s, and menus that are presented tableside on large boards. You’ll spot a mixed crowd of businessmen and some well-to-do artists, with few tourists among them. The huge plate of langostinos a la plancha is shareable, so start with that and follow it up with the filete de robalo in a thin tomato sauce with briny olives and spices typical of the coastal state of Veracruz.
