If times weren’t so darned tough, I’d predict that La Condesa was going to take off like a rocket. I mean, the space is crazy contemporary, the drinks are awesome, the food is by and large excellent (based on, oh, about eight apps and dishes). The only thing standing in the way are the prices, which I think are kinda high for now. But maybe the beautiful people who haunt the warehouse district still have folding money and noncanceled plastic. I loved the ceviches, which are offbeat, and the tuna tostada. Great duck in black mole with toasted sesame seeds (did not love love love the huarache with huitlacoche–I can barely even type those words!). You definitely ought to give the place a try. You know, be there or be square.
