Taverna may just be the most beautiful restaurant in all of CDMX. It’s housed in a historical hacienda from 1905 that’s recently been restored and the lighting is dim, as much of the restaurant is lit by candlelight. The atmosphere is ideal for a date, a special celebration or a group dinner that extends late into the night. Most of the Mediterranean-inspired dishes are roasted in a wood-burning oven, and standouts include dates stuffed with chorizo and wrapped in jamon serrano, fried sardines with a sardine aioli, and a beet carpaccio with a pistachio dressing that should be bottled and sold everywhere. Wash it all down with their signature cocktail, the Pin Tonic, made with gin del bosque and giant olives.
