Our recent meal at Hugo Ortega’s Xochi, anchoring the Marriott Marquis and overlooking the lush Discovery Green, justified all its national kudos. The wood-framed patio is inviting, and the airy restaurant has generous dining areas, a wraparound bar, and comfortable banquettes. We relished our memela starter: a toasted masa cake layered with refried beans, shredded pork, queso fresco, and avocado-tomatillo sauce. The Gulf catch of the day, grouper, was cooked perfectly, resting in piquant yellow banana pepper mole scattered with baby vegetables and greens (perfectly paired by Mexican-crafted chenin blanc). Also fine: the giant pork shank, falling-off-the-bone tender and engulfed in a pool of brick-red fruity mole. If you’re truly hungry, skip the tuna crudo; it’s only six slivers of seared tuna with flowers.
