El Cardenal restaurant was founded in 1969 in the building which housed the Royal and Pontifical University of Mexico, located at the corner of Moneda and Seminario streets.
Actually the general objectives were quite modest; at first, it was a matter of trying to face how to support the family. Nevertheless, within this need and as things moved on, other principles which determined the way rose: it was paramount that things got to be done well and for this we had to make it our trade. Everyday doings were transformed into a permanent challenge and reflection.
