What makes the Modern Mexican fare at La Condesa "modern"? Is it the clean decor of the restaurant? The neat silverware and serving plates? Or the flavors? Well, we'd say a bit of all three — but with a definite emphasis on the latter. On the menu at this energetic Downtown spot, you'll find a selection of salsas and guacamoles, salads, soups, ceviches, tostadas, tacos, and platters that go beyond traditional fare to incorporate ingredients like grapefruit, eggplant, fennel, Texas redfish, and more. The drink menu is equally as impressive, with a number of classic and signature cocktails listed alongside a large selection of tequilas and mezcals and a modest — but well-curated list of beers and wines.
