Mexican Restaurant
“Lalo! is a must for breakfast, there are Mexican dishes like chilaquiles en salsa verde and chorizo with eggs, as well as familiar brunch plates like French toast with whipped cream and berries, and a Croque Monsieur. If you've ever wanted to try escamoles (ant larvae), this is a good place to do so. Sautéed in butter, folded into scrambled eggs, then served in a taco with chunks of avocado, they're approachable and almost unnoticeable.”

Deli / Bodega
“The food offered is simple but with a gourmet twist that lowers the haute cuisine and makes it daily and accessible.Delirio is a kind of semi-self-service cafe-bistrot, with an informal but sophisticated aesthetic. La comida que se ofrece es sencilla pero con un giro gourmet que baja del pedestal la alta cocina y la vuelve cotidiana y accesible.Delirio es una especie de cafetería-bistrot semi self-service, con una estética informal pero sofisticada”
