Tu y Yo

Tu y Yo With nary a taco or burrito on offer, Tu y Yo serves traditional recipes from southern Mexico, all prepared according to strict slow-food standards. The mole sauces are luscious and complex, the chicken yunkaax is touched with the sultry smokiness of huitlacoche, and in the colder months the rejuvenating powers of the chili relleno en nogada (a poblano stuffed with beef, raisins, and almonds) are nothing short of miraculous.
