Fonda San Miguel
When someone asks, what’s the best Sunday brunch in town, the default answer for years has been Fonda San Miguel. The center of the lovely art-filled room is turned into a spectacular and extensive buffet of dishes served in lovely hand-made Mexican pots and vessels, where you can go around as many times as you wish—prix fixe $38.95—feasting on an array worthy of a fancy resort. The line-up changes, but expect the likes of cochinita pibil (the Yucatán’s great pork specialty), chicken in dark chile-and-chocolate mole poblano, fresh ceviche and aquachile, refried black beans under a shower of queso fresco, and a nut- and herb-rich green mole. You might have to rest up before you tackle the dessert table, but just have some coffee, chat with your friends, and you’ll be ready to go at it again. Brunch cocktails are extra but reasonably priced. Reservations are recommended.
