Restaurante Nucleo - Restaurant Mexico City - Mexico

Just down the street from the Museo Casa de Carranza and around the corner from the JardĂ­n del Arte is the Restaurante Nucleo. Locals pack this eatery near the Paseo de la Reforma at 3 p.m. for the afternoon comida, but you can skip the crowds by ordering this meal any other time from 1 - 5 p.m. Restaurante Nucleo, which seats about 60, is known for its food quality and the unusual salad bar, which comes with the set lunch menu. Salad bar offerings might include: seasoned green beans; noodle salads; steamed broccoli/cauliflower/carrots; cooked "nopales" (cactus leaves); Swedish meatballs; "empanada" meat-potato pies; pickled beets with fresh pineapple; sliced watermelon and papaya; and "tuna" cactus fruit. Diners get all that with the basic 50-peso set menu, which also comes with soup, a choice of three main dishes, a dessert and a fruit drink. For 13 pesos more, you can choose from 14 main dishes. For entertainment, there's TV or serenading guitarists. Open 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Sunday - Friday and 8 a.m. - 1 p.m. Saturday. The restaurant has a good breakfast menu, too.
