The website The Happening recently listed their selection of the 10 most exclusive restaurants in Mexico City. It’s interesting to see The Palm and Nobu on the list, as I have been to these wonderful restaurants in Los Angeles (and several other cities in the case of The Palm), and didn’t feel especially exclusive – although I might have talked myself into it if I had been in that frame of mind. It’s also interesting to see a strong Japanese influence on the list. For me, though, I can’t wait for my next trip to Mexico City to try the haute cuisine versions of traditional Mexican dishes.
Here’s the list – yes, they cheated and listed 11 restaurants:
Pujol – Recently ranked at number 16 among the world’s best restaurants
Biko – Based on the Basque tradition
Anatol – A farm-to-table concept
Dulce Patria – Traditional Mexican cuisine with an original touch
San Angel Inn – Based on Mexican traditions, but making room on the menu for Oysters Rockefeller
J & G Grill – Asian French fusion
Morimoto – Another international outpost featuring traditional Japanese cuisine with western touches
The Palm – Steaks and gigantic lobsters… what’s not to like?
Au Pied du Cochon – French high cuisine
Nobu – American bistro food with a creative Japanese influence
Quintonil – Another entrant in the 50 best restaurants of the world. Based on traditional Mexican cuisine
