San Lorenzo is the new Italian bistro-type place in Riberas, and it is located where the French restaurant used to be, on the right side going toward Chapala. Look for the giant inflated coke can, which is not exactly in keeping with the style of the place, but they do serve coke and the balloon makes a good way to spot the place. We have been there 2 nights in a row (our house has been covered in plaster dust inside), and it was great. It was crowded one night, deserted the next. Go there before the word gets out, or call for a reservation; their number is 765-7172. The young chef in the kitchen is very energetic and wonderful to watch, with his flaming saute pans. Just hope he does not run out of energy; it is hard work managing a kitchen singlehandedly!
And Bubba, San Lorenzo is MUCH better than Subway!!!!!!!
By the way, we took the suggestion of trying the tacos at the Tacoria Bodegita (sp?) just west of Colon on the south side of the carreterra, the place that is run by the La Bodega family. They were wonderful--the Mexican equivalent of Bubba's sliders. We took them home, warmed them in the microwave and sprinked them with their sauces and onions and coriander (they gave us liberal amounts in separate baggies), and, gringos that we are, we added chopped tomato and lettuce.
And instead of dreaming of Starbucks, may I suggest the coffee cafe opposite the Church has great coffee and is a nice place to stop after dinner in town. These hot days, a frappicino tastes mighty good! They are open 9 to 9 every day.
So much for the restaurant commercials!!
