Fodor's Expert Review Balam Centro
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
This steak house and bar, open from 2 pm until midnight, serves Mexican food in a casually elegant environment. The decor might make you feel that you're in New York or San Francisco. Tables have comfortable, cushioned chairs, the walls are decorated with abstract art, and the strong lighting on the paintings is what gives light to the whole restaurant. Tables are covered with simple white tablecloths. The jugo de carne (a savory beef broth) and the mollejas de res (beef sweetbread) are great options. Save room for the Brie-and-blackberry dessert. It's a mixture of lightly fried cheese and fresh blackberries and is a delicious end to the meal.
