The busy hub of Mexico City is a gastronomic destination for thousands of travelers every year. You’ll find a number of top-rated restaurants at modern hotels in downtown as well as some charming restaurants and bistros serving up a variety of Mexican, Italian, and European-inspired dishes. Here’s where you’ll find five can’t-miss restaurants in Mexico City.
If you’re looking for a romantic restaurant that serves up plenty of hearty fare, head to this Italian restaurant in the buzzy neighborhood of Roma. The restaurant serves up Italian food with a Mexican twist. Make sure to try the burrata along with their homemade pasta and desserts.
This busy seafood restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy modern takes on popular seafood dishes. It’s located in the Condesa neighborhood and is within a short walk of some popular bars, so you can head out and enjoy some after-dinner drinks or a nightcap after a delicious meal here.
As one of the few fine dining restaurants in the city, this is the place to enjoy a robust tasting menu and delight in new flavors. The unique experience, combined with a modern setting, makes the restaurant a must-visit for Mexican food lovers. It’s located in the upscale Polanco neighborhood that offers high-end shopping and the Soumaya Museum.
It’s hard to find great sushi in Mexico City but you can enjoy the diverse menu at this Japanese sushi bar in the neighborhood of Juarez. It’s smaller than most restaurants — only 13 seats — so plan on heading here on a week night or less busy time of the day if you want prompt service. If you’re ready to splurge, try the omakase, where you let the chef serve whatever he wants rather than ordering off the menu.
Maximo Bistrot embraces the farm-to-table trend – which is a relatively new concept for many restaurants in Mexico City. Its ever-changing menu emphasizes fresh produce, which makes it a great place to fill up on veggies after a day of eating street tacos!
