Co-owned by Y Tu Mamá También star Diego Luna, La Bipolar (155 Malitzin, Coyoacán; 52-55/5484-8230; dinner for two $30) serves upgraded classics (rib-eye tacos, marlin tostaditas) by Lula Martin del Campo, known for her menus for the Hotel Habita. Inside, the hip design enlists circular butcher blocks as stools and tables, and tinas (aluminum laundry baskets) as lamp shades.
