Colima 166, Roma Nte., 06700 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico
Perhaps it’s more interested in diner loyalty than in snagging prizes, but chef Elena Reygadas’s original Mexico City restaurant is still beloved—and busier than ever. So while a few greatest hits linger season to season,...

Historic center of Mexico City, Centro, Mexico City, CDMX, Mexico
We stopped at this stall near the Zócalo because there were tons of people buzzing around it so we knew it must be something good. My non-Spanish speaking friend ran across the street and pantomimed to the vendor that he wanted one of whatever he...

Anatole France 100, Polanco, Polanco III Secc, 11560 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico
Never underestimate the power of shocking pink. The intimate but lively dining room at Dulce Patria—the smash hit by celebrity chef Martha Ortiz—feels not unlike a stage set. Soon after 2 p.m., it starts to fill with high-powered...

Av. Isaac Newton 55, Polanco, Polanco IV Secc, 11560 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico
Chef Jorge Vallejo spent time in the kitchen at Pujol before he and wife Alejandra Flores opened Quintonil, giving the former boss a run for his money. Their place, too, has become a fixture on best-restaurants lists, and is changing how people...

Londres 130, Juárez, 06600 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico
Right in the Heart of Zona Rosa, hotel Geneve is one of the oldest in the city. Its lobby is also a sort of museum, with objects that date back a hundred years. It opened in 1907. If you are an adventurous eater, be sure to ask for habanero...

Tennyson 133, Polanco, Polanco IV Secc, 11550 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico
After years at its original, jewel-box-like (and maybe even a little solemn) location, the city’s high temple of Mexican regional cuisine has moved to a more expansive—some say more relaxed—space. It includes more light, a bar...

Calle Regina, 27 B, Cuauhtemoc, Centro, 06080 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico
Grasshoppers, or chapulines in Spanish, are on the menu at Al Andar, a hip mezcalería on the first floor of a renovated tenement. They're squishy, sour and taste best when chased with a slice of orange.

Oscar Wilde 29, Polanco, Polanco III Secc, 11550 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico
As a general rule, I try to avoid the restaurants in Polanco neighborhood. They tend to be pricey and rarely live up to their fame. The flagship Dulcinea is one of the notable exceptions. Run by chefs Lucy, Leopoldo and Fabián Acuña, and one of...
