La Condesa: Great Eats, but that Wait is Rough
This is the only drawback to the beautiful genius that is La Condesa. It's a good thing the art on the walls is so mesmerizing, because if it weren't, and I didn't know what the food was like, I'd up and leave.
Nonetheless, I'm glad I stuck around. (It doesn't hurt that there's an entire gourmet salsa bar at your fingertips. Try the strawberry salsa. Thank me later.)

There's plenty variety throughout the menu. In fact, it's kind of like a mini map of Mexico. You've got your Baja specialty, and then your Oaxacan specialty, and then there's your Yucatan specialty... so brush up on your geography.
I dove right into the heart of Mexico with the Oaxaca mole, the Aztec Tinga, and the Mayan Cochinita Pibil tacos.
