Reservations at Izote are hard to get, so book in advance. Keep an eye out for the unique fish entrees, such as shark filet sauteed with chile pasilla, onion, garlic, and epazote, then steamed in chicken stock and pulque (a fermented cactus liquor). Award-winning chef Quintana's specialties include four tamales (cheese and epazote; cheese and squash blossoms; back corn truffles; and shredded chicken with spicy tomato salsa), ceviche (Acapulco style-chopped mackerel, avocado, and onions in a salsa Mexicana), and Tarascan-style bean soup with fried tortilla strips, chile ancho and cream.
Went there with my wife last Saturday evening. We arrived at 9PM w/out a reservation and were immediately shown to a table. I had heard that the food was great but the service not -- we found that the food WAS great AND the service was, too! We especially liked the steady re-supply of fresh warm tortillas, condiments, and limes to our table, all without our asking. After some excellent starters, I had steak and my wife had fish; we paired these with an Argentine Cabernet-Malbec blend from a winery that I was unfamiliar with, but it complemented the food very well. All in all, the most memorable meal we have had in several years, which is saying something because we usually dine out in the DC/NYC/Boston corridor and have the chance to eat at some nice places. Better value for your money than you typically find in New York, too.
A very nice room but very disappointing experience. White and rosado wines were surprisingly expensive and lightly poured. Food was mixed, such as the trio of ceviche of which two were OK and the third (scallops) were small, slightly fishy and sitting in an overly simple soy marinade. My wife's steak was a beautiful piece of meat, but was practically raw, and had to be sent back twice just to get it medium rare. (Little surprise that one of our party fell ill the next day.) Painfully slow service aggravated the situation -- it took us almost 20 minutes just to get la cuenta.
I liked the way in which Quintana's essential cooking shows us the essence of Mexican cooking ina fabulous atmosphere with great company.
I celebrated my 33rd birthday on the company of my mom and dad.
For starters I ordered duck tacos with black mole, and for the entree I had fish with achiote.
The chocolate dessert is fantastic, as well as the Mexican wines from Casa Madero.
