Launched by chef Luis Arce Mota of Café Condesa, right across the street from Ofrenda ("Offering"), this new café specializes in Mexican fare of a creative nature, which struggles to distinguish itself by offering virtually no antojitos-the corn-based kitchen we usually associate with south-of-the-border food. In fact, there was nary a tortilla in the place. That said, the vegetable soup was delicious, a pale potage bursting with flavor, though sans chile heat. We also liked the pig-foot chimichangas, which struck us as more like Chinese egg rolls. The tapas-bar-like toss of pickled anchovies and potatoes was also very agreeable, though we didn"t much like the shrimp fritters, which were described as "albondigas," which usually means meat balls. Close by Sheraton Square, the space is pleasant, though the service can be a bit shaky.
