I wish we had more mexican restaurants like this around. The mole and poblano dishes were delicious. Next time we'll be staying for dessert to try the avocado cheese cake. I'm still thinking about the food the next day.

A cozy, intimate place that felt like you stepped back in time. The counter flanked by old black & white photos reminiscent of Old Mexico. This isn't where you'll find combination plates or the more commonplace Mexican fare. It's far more interesting than that. Think...More

I haven't had dinner at Tu y Yo for a few years, but it was the perfect place for the four of us to enjoy an evening together. I like their menu because it's beyond the run of the mill Mexican. All four of us...More

Warm helpful waitstaff, ample portions, lots of mole choices, house made sangria; a very nice and a little surprising dining experience. Try the avocado pie for dessert - sounds weird but was a perfect ending to a delicious meal.

Came here for lunch on a Friday afternoon and although the lunch menu was quite small we asked for their full menu which had a much larger selection which I thought was very good. The menu has a number of choices within each food category...More

The choices on the menu are minimal, but each dish is chosen and crafted with care. Each menu item describes the provenance, both place and date, of the recipe. They range from relatively modern back to pre-European dishes. Anyone expecting the usual "Mexican" fare served...More
