Dining Guide

La Fonda on Main

Sunday brunch couldn’t be better in Monterrey, Mérida, or Vera Cruz, and here on North Main, you’ll find flavors from each of those regions, plus a smattering of imaginative fusion dishes. For example, pancakes drizzled with a fuchsia-colored cactus-tuna syrup and barbacoa enchiladas topped with a fried egg and served with a bright-orange sauce made from red jalapeños. If you want a bit more tradition, order the Old #7, a chalupa-and-cheese-enchilada plate the likes of which we’ve been dining on since the fifties—and that was twenty years into its history (there’s an updated New #7 too). Now owned by restaurateur Cappy Lawton, La Fonda still has the best oak-tree-shaded patio in town, with service and food that live up to the atmosphere and history.
