Wine bars aren’t really a thing (yet) in CDMX, but if the popularity of this place is any indication, that needs to change. Hugo feels like a Lower East Side transplant but with a Mexican twist - which we guess is what happens when two former New York residents relocate here and open a place. The wines, of course, are a highlight - largely natural, many from Mexico’s wine region in Valle de Guadalupe, and they have one of the best varieties of orange wines in the city. Small plates are the crux of the menu and they keep things simple here with standouts like crab salad with celery and mustard and roasted chicken. This is definitely one of the hardest places in Roma to get a table during peak hours, so make sure to reserve one or show up when your grandparents would.
