Summary: A twist on Mexican cuisine.

Hugo's serves up a slice of Mexico with a twist, offering a menu that traverses the country's diverse culinary landscape. From ceviches to chapulines, the restaurant invites diners to indulge in authentic dishes not commonly found elsewhere. The interior, a restored 1925 building, reflects the menu's authenticity, with original brick walls and a stamped-tin ceiling adding to the ambiance. An impressive wine list and signature drinks, including hot chocolate and margaritas shaken tableside, complement the food offerings. Whether it's a romantic candlelit dinner, a special occasion, or a lively Sunday brunch, Hugo's promises an experience that's both casually elegant and deeply rooted in Mexican culinary traditions.
