Chelsea Mexican Food Report: Sueños Out, Fonda In

Mexican food fans bummed out about the closing of Sue Torres' 11-year-old Sueños on Sunday now have a replacement standby on the way: Fonda is moving into Chelsea at the end of April. Taking up the space that once housed Bombay Talkie on Ninth Ave., the Brooklyn-based mini chainlet, now with locations in the East Village and Park Slope, will offer its Nuevo Mexican menu from former Rosa Mexicano culinary director Roberto Santibañez this spring. Santibañez's cookbooks, Truly Mexican and Tacos, Tortas and Tamales have been highly lauded by the culinary community.
