Amaya is one of the new restaurants in Mexico City and it’s in one of these neighborhoods that used to be sketchy but are becoming more popular and, shall we say, hipsterish. In fact it’s right across the street from the Parker Lenox jazz club / night club.
Their menu changes daily and they have a large wine list that includes wines from the no-sulphate movement and they also sell wine in case you try something you like.
On my visit our party tried 5-6 different things and everything was delicious.
Tostada de Ceviche. Delicious.
Salad with eggplant hummus. Very delicate.
Aguachile. Like a ceviche in small cold soup. Delicious.
Grilled octopus on a bed of artichoke purée. Super tender.
Chirimoya pannacotta with mandarin sorbet and persimmon. Exquisite.
