Paris 16

Perfect For:LunchQuiet Meals


Avenida Paseo de la Reforma 368, Cuauhtémoc
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Not much has changed since Paris 16 opened in 1985. There are still linoleum tiles on the floor, Venetian blinds that keep CDMX’s busy Avenida Reforma outside feeling worlds away, and waiters clad in tuxedos serving lunch even if the vibe is fairly low-key. The food is a mix of general European-inspired dishes, like the outstanding pechuga parmesana, a thinly pressed chicken cutlet covered in a parmesan crust and served on top of mashed potatoes, and a tortilla española expertly prepared with the perfect ratio of potatoes to eggs (heavy on the former). The chatty owner is often there to greet guests while personally overseeing the daily menu himself, and you’ll probably be the only tourist in the place (at least for now).
