Set in the traditional, colonial neighbourhood of San Angel (think cobblestone streets, large Spanish influence mansions) Paxia fits the neighbourhood perfectly. Multi-award winning restaurant Paxia (meaning peace in Nahuatl) is without a doubt one of the most sophisticated and all around best dinning experiences in the city. Impecable service, jaw dropping decor (a mixture between Asian and Mexican touches accompanied by excellent lighting), yet with a casual and unpretentious feel to it. Paxia's food matches this ambiance perfectly' Mexican traditional dishes get a surprising reworking here - as in the chicharron (pork grind) lasagne with a pulque sauce; the ostentetious Aztec Budin (a masterfully, if excessive dish including foie gras, truffles which won top main dish in Mexico City in 2008) the "drunken duck" enchiladas with a dark beer sauce, etc. It's entree and bar menu are equally impressive and include a selection of local boutique beers, top range Mexican wines and cocktails invented by the in-house barman.
