Clementina Flores is a mole goddess, a woman sent from the heavens to create sauces so rich and complex, you’ll want to ingest them with a straw. Formerly the mole master at Chilpancingo and Ixcapuzalco, she now combines her mole with chef Carlos Tello’s food, and magic happens. For each season, mole-doused entrées take on new flavors. Try the signature borrego en mole negro, which matches a New Zealand rack of lamb with a classic Oaxacan black mole sauce, mashed potatoes, jack cheese and green beans.

This is NOT a taco and burrito take out place-- this is a high end restaurant with a full bar, and some of the most delicious authentic Mexican I have tasted in Chicago. The sauces (moles) are prepared from scratch. $30+ a person, but worth every penny. All meat, poultry, and seafood are premium. Good service, family feel. Be patient, your server will likely make the drinks for you. Note: People from the suburbs drive in to eat here.
