***CLOSED*** Famed for his long association with El Popo, chef Angel Aceves Vivanco has teamed up with Lourdes Estrada to create this cheerful-looking spot on the edge of New Town. Ringing with colorful patterns and mosaics, the effect is simple but reassuringly lively – the same can be said...

There’s something gloriously irresistible about La Rotisserie. Just the location is enough: down a narrow cobbled twitten in the New Town. Bask under the shaded colonnades, or retreat inside to a small dining room that has an easy sense of quietly-spoken luxury. Hailed as one of the top fine...

As it transpires, there’s one way of serving the mains, and it’s truly ingenious: on injera, a spongy flatbread that’s used to scoop up the food. Basically, you eat the plate. Brilliant. And yes, the Ethiopian choices marvelous: meat and fish dishes served in curry-like sauces with heaps of...
