The Hip Kitchen is the restaurant of the Hippodrome, a boutique hotel where Hollywood celebrities and any similar hipsters are housed while in the city. The building is an authentic art deco beauty from the 1930s andremodellled by the infamous architect Nahim Dagdug. The cuisine is international, and unexpected, as the Hip Kitchen's signature is regularly rotating a list of about 10 chefs from different backgrounds and specializing in different cuisines. The result is an ever changing menu of varied influences but with a basis in Mexican fusion. Located in the charming neighbourhood of La Condesa, the Hip Kitchen also boasts of what is possibly the best martini menu in town and some of the most friendly wait staff. You don't have to be an infamous film person, but don't be surprised if you catch them here.
