Quintonil 

Polanco
Contemporary Mexican

This diminutive restaurant, opened by Pujol alum Jorge Vallejo and his wife Alejandra Flores, is as relaxed as it is exciting and impressive. The menu features sophisticated nouveau-Mexican dishes with a focus on seasonally driven ingredients, many of which are either picked from the restaurant's garden nearby, or sourced from purveyors within 30 yards. Even the simplest things (a Mexican-herb salad, for instance) achieve an incredible depth of flavor, while more complex offerings, like the duck in a "recado negro" sauce, boast some of the most exciting flavors in the city. There are plenty of vegetable-forward dishes, too, like an excellent squash made with homemade mole and charred tortillas.
