Husband-and-wife restaurateurs Nick Cervera and Guadalupe Elizalde have brought their Mexican mini-chain, Móle, to the calorie-starved Upper East Side. As at every Móle, the menu reflects family recipes from Elizalde's upbringing in Mexico City in fact, certain sauces are still made by the chef's mother, who sends them to NYC every month. This location has a 200-year-old wooden bar and exposed-brick walls hung with black-and-white photos of Mexico City, taken by Cervera. See a photo of the bar, and check out the menu, straight ahead.
