A former tennis court in Pedregal, one of Mexico's wealthiest neighbourhoods, has gone to become one of the latest sensations in French influenced cuisine in Mexico City. Sud 777 has been designed in what owners call "Shabby Chic" a set of wooden and stone terraces, balconies, open spaces all covered in thick vegetation and dotted with various fireplaces. The result is warm, enticing and very comfortable. The food is French influenced with large portions and their tuna (cooked in lemon and spices with a bed of avocado and crunchy tortillas) recently won an award for one of the top 15 main dishes in the city. As expected, their cellar is highly influenced by continental traditions yet remains a good place to try some of the top Mexican bottles. You can opt for the full restaurant experience, or go for their bistro. Their bar has also become a mecca for the young and wealthy and a table there must be booked at least one week in advance.
