Entre Suelo y Cielo
A new restaurant opened in Pátzcuaro in the last month. The Chef, Carlos Escudero, brings a refreshing new approach to cooking. I would call his style "international with Mexican touches."
The medium sized dining room shows the difference as well. Although it's located in an old Colonial building, it's decorated in a contemporary style. Service is very careful and attentive, without being overly effusive or servile.
We had comida there yesterday, Día de San Valentino. The price was $60 pesos each, while it had usually been $45 pesos.
We enjoyed a nice version of Sopa Tarasca, Consomé de Pollo con Verduras, Torre de Manzana, an attractive and refreshing tuna and cucumber salad between two crisp apple slices. My wife had a delicious roast pork loin in a tasty jus, with buttery pureed potatoes and some other vegs. I had Filete de Pescado a la Mantequilla and a touch of garlic, at my request. The fish had a subtle taste of smoke. There was a small side salad of carrots and lettuce, with a particularly tasty dressing.
We ended with a dessert of Pay de Queso and a Pastel ChocoFlan, and a decent cup of Café Americano.(Get THIS: Free refills!).
Location: Avenida Vasco Quiroga, just above the Plaza Grande, on the right going up. Open Tuesday through Sunday, 9 AM to 6 PM. Breakfast is served also, but we haven't tried that yet. Se habla inglés.

(Edit) Palomares emailed me to say that the restaurant is housed in a new building, actually built last year. The architect and builder did a good job on that. It fooled me.
