Contemporary. Chic. Minimal. Eloise is a divine French restaurant, offering both traditional and novel new dishes to satisfy every diner, in a beautifully decorated, neoclassical- inspired interior. Each dish, from the truffle topped huevos rotos to the risotto with escargot, draws from and is influenced by classic French dishes and ingredients, yet simultaneously breaks away from the traditional to serve up something truly original. Reservations are a must for this small but always busy restaurant in Colonia San Ángel. Make sure to stay after dinner and enjoy a martini.
