Forming a part of a growing list of ambitious restaurants to spring up this season, restaurant Caprichos presents itself well.
The building located on Madero street between Cinco de Mayo and Constitucion is a former bed and breakfast and before that, Casa Aramburo.
One of the most prominent architectural features is the long curving staircase leading to the upstairs library which still houses the Aramburo family book collection and private dining rooms, plus nicely appointed restrooms for las damas y los caballeros. The ground floor has the bar plus a cozy waiting area, a pastry shop slash dining room complete with tempting desserts on display in a refrigerated glass case and two more dining areas, one of which designated as appropriate for smokers.
Restaurant Caprichos serves from 8 in the morning until 11 at night. Breakfasts include omelets with whole eggs or just eggwhites, freshly baked bread, eggs benedict and a spanish tortilla or italian fritatta. Lunch and dinner guests may enjoy homemade pasta dishes, excellent cuts of meat, fish, seafood or thin crust pizzas. Wine and beer plus a full bar are available.
Prices for this white tablecloth restaurant are quite reasonable. Caprichos, Madero between 5 de Mayo and Constitucion.

- Before gaining control of my life, I created pastries for some cool places in California: San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Brix Restaurant in Napa and The Lodge in Sonoma. Now I am the chef/owner of Pan D' Les bakery in La Paz. My personal favorite is the Multigrano loaf, full of crunchy seeds and a nice chewy crust.
