Huset is one of Mexico City’s 2016 new openings, and has been exceptionally well received by locals and tourists a like. In the very trendy district of Roma Norte (the place for bar hopping and cool restaurants), Huset has found the perfect home.
Its stand out feature is of course its beautiful green terrace/courtyard, which is wonderful for brunch/lunch, or for dinner. With countless lamp bulbs strung overhead, almost like a ceiling of lights, it looks stunning lit up at night. Naturally it’s most popular to sit here, and very lively, so book ahead if you specifically want to sit here.
We did not book ahead on a Saturday night, so sat inside. The bar inside is charming too, less atmospheric perhaps, but with exceptionally nice staff (their English isn’t great, but who cares), who are talented cocktail shakers. Our Espresso Martinis were excellent and helped fight off our jet lag. But Huset is mainly a place to come for lunch or dinner, and as we had booked Pujol for dinner we didn’t dine here, which I quite regretted having looked at the menu. I have since also read excellent reviews of the food.
