Terranova — Oaxaca City, Oaxaca
Oaxacan Restaurant • $$-$$$ • (C)
By offering more attentive waiters and better presentation of its food, Terranova has upped the ante on its street-level competitors on the Zócalo. Despite these positive moves, though, the mostly Oaxacan cooking coming out of its kitchen isn't that much better than the competition, not to mention the somewhat higher prices. That said, the all-you-can-eat Sunday breakfast buffet is a good deal at 100 pesos.
