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.
