When you tell someone you’re visiting Mexico City, there’s about a 50% chance they’ll respond by saying, “Oh are you going to...what’s that place called?” If you feel like talking to this person, then finish their sentence with “Pujol.” This high-end Mexican spot in the middle of Polanco is one of the best-known restaurants in the world, and it’s where you should go with a small group of friends if you’re looking to have one splurge meal in Mexico City.

Get either the ten-course taco omakase at the bar or one of the tasting menus in the dining room (each one costs around $150 per person). The star of your meal will be the mole, which has been cooking continuously since 2013 and tastes like incredibly light and complex melted chocolate. Reservations open up a year in advance, and you’ll probably need to plan a couple months ahead if you want to get a table.

Churrería El Moro

You can get trendy churros now, but none are quite as good as the classic El Moro.

Restaurante Nicos

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.

San Angel Inn

Hit up San Angel Inn after the Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo house. It can get touristy, but the excellent Mexican food and patio make up for it.

El Cardenal

Head to El Cardenal in Centro Historico for the best breakfast in the city. Be sure to pair your nata with a concha.
