A second DF Mexico to open later this year

DF Mexico, the modern Mexican restaurant from the team behind Wahaca, is to open a second branch on London’s Tottenham Court Road in September. The opening of the 130-cover restaurant comes a year after the first site opened at London’s Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane.

The menu includes a ‘New York-style’ Mexican sandwich served in a toasted brioche bun with smashed avocado, and Mexican-American steak tacos made with grilled steak, cheese, chipotle salsa and tomato guacamole. There will also be a couple of new additions to the menu such as chilli con carne, crinkle cut fries and locally brewed ale.

Miers said: “Tottenham Court Road is an exciting area as it’s in the middle of everything; creative businesses, universities, hospitals, theatres, libraries, courts, you name it. When we first launched DF Mexico we were nervous about doing something that was a ‘fusion’, but this food reflects the reality of big cities – a melting pot of influences that can come together to make something great”.
