Pedro y Lola
Alfredo Gómez Rubio jump-started Old Town's renaissance when he opened this restaurant in 1997. Named after actor Pedro Infante and ranchera singer Lola Beltrán, the restaurant is housed in a 130-year-old Neoclassical building, the former social club, which housed prominent dance performances in the 1800's. The menu is packed with regional dishes such as molcajete (chunks of arrachera beef with grilled nopales, onions, and fresh panela cheese) all served win the wood-beamed dining room.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
