$$$$Perfect For:BreakfastBrunchClassic Establishment

Located about a block away from the Zocalo, this local institution, which originally opened in 1969, serves arguably the best breakfast in the city. Before looking at the menu, go ahead and order the nata, which is clotted cream created from boiling raw milk. Pair it with a concha, a soft sweet pastry bread with a sugar crust for a breakfast appetizer. Then go crazy with chilaquiles, enchiladas, poached eggs in clay pots, and omelettes with ingredients you’ve probably never heard of. Best to get here early or be prepared to wait.

Rosetta

Rosetta is a beautiful restaurant in Roma that serves excellent Italian food with a Mexican twist.

Restaurante Nicos image

Nicos is a drive, but it’s worth the trip for excellent food from a family-owned traditional Mexican spot. Get the enchiladas and duck mole.

El Turix image

A tiny taco spot in Polanco that specializes in food from Yucatan: get the cochinita pibil tacos and panucho.

Kyo Sushi image

Mexico City has plenty of sushi, but Kyo is our favorite place to get it. There are only 13 seats in the restaurant, so be sure to make a reservation.
