Lardo review image

Lardo

Eating in Mexico City on Sundays gets tricky because most restaurants and businesses are closed. Another place (in addition to La Docena) that stays open is Lardo, a fantastic all-day Mediterranean spot from the same people who run Rosetta. Early lunch is definitely the time to come here when the menu expands to include things like nduja and burrata pizza, mango tiradito, and our favorite grilled octopus in the city. They don’t take reservations at lunch, so expect a bit of a wait on the weekends. That said, putting your name in and taking a stroll through Parque Espana to watch all the neighborhood dogs socializing isn’t a terrible way to spend 45 minutes.

Panadería Rosetta

There are too many bakeries to count in the city, but Panaderia Rosetta across from Rosetta in Roma is one of the best - get the guava pastry.

When you want late-night food along with a late-night scene, head to Paramo in Roma.

San Angel Inn

Hit up San Angel Inn after the Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo house. It can get touristy, but the excellent Mexican food and patio make up for it.

La Docena is an oyster bar in Roma that’s one of the only places in Mexico City open on Sundays.
