Certain pursuits become habit-forming, especially if you dig supplying clothes to convents. For a new Mexican spot from a dude with a habit of opening them, there's Mitad del Mundo.
From a chef who certainly isn't in his first Mexican restaurant rodeo (he opened Los Moles, and most recently Danzon), MDM's regional Mex cuisine is plated on two vibrant levels decked with colorful flags on the ceiling, and murals featuring everything from seafood spreads to pioneering Latin musicians of the '40s and '50s, who shockingly weren't just white guys with really cool mustaches.
You can kick things off with Veracruz-style empanadas stuffed with fresh cheese and epazote, crispy potato 'n poblano taquitos with housemade crema, or some Huarachitos -- mini corn masa boats with fillings like red mole'd chicken and sweet plantains, who no longer have a chip on their shoulder.
Mains include a Oaxacan-inspired marinated & grilled duck breast in a red chile chileajo, sea scallops w/ roasted potatoes in a creamy pumpkin seed sauce, and wood-grilled fish tacos on housemade tortillas w/ charcoal'd green onions and roasted rajas peppers, thankfully not Raja Bell peppers, as those play stifling defense every time you try to put them in your mouth.
Highlighting the full bar are tableside-shaken margaritas, and on weekends there'll be live Latin music, which at convents usually just means "Ave Maria".
