Dulce Patria

Polanco
Contemporary Mexican

One in the Federal District’s small army of revered female chefs, Martha Ortiz Chapa is busy forging a brand-new version of regionally inspired Mexican cooking in her acclaimed Polanco restaurant. From the white spiral staircase at the center of the space to the scarlet banquettes to the gold-leaf walls, there is drama to spare. A polyglot crowd dines on reinvented classics like enchiladas with sweet plantains and mole sauce. (Even the dish descriptions are a delight, like the “Joyful Firedance Fish.”) Whimsical desserts and inventive aguas frescas are also worth tasting.
