On the corner of “Republica de Argentina” and “Justo Sierra (Donceles)”, at the roof garden of the popular and traditional bookstore and publisher named “Libreria Porrúa” you can find a contemporary design Restaurant where elements such as vegetation (cacti originating in our Mexico), floors in granite and wood, modern furniture and glass make up its structure. Restaurant El Mayor is a proposal for high gastronomy in the heart of Mexico City Downtown. A multiproposal concept that includes terrace-deli, bar and restaurant with a view unique to the archaeological area of temple Mayor, the backs of the Metropolitan Cathedral, as well as majestic buildings of the Colonial and modern Mexico. The menu is based on classic Mexican food with a contemporary, where ingredients base of our Mexican gastronomic heritage are the main reason for the letter.
