Located in the old Pujol space, Ticuchi might just be the best-looking restaurant in the city. The place is dark, as in very dark, but that just makes for a more exciting experience. Of course, the real appeal here is the food. With a heavily vegetarian focus, corn is the star (the women making fresh tortillas in the front kitchen might clue you in). The menu changes often but consistently includes impressive small plates like their staple and outstanding tamal de esquite. The music, too, is always on-point with a good blend of ’80s classics like Springsteen, as well as some fun remixed Mexican covers, and it’s played at the perfect volume to be able to have a nice first (or 10th) date.

Fine dining in Mexico City means the tasting menu at Pujol in Polanco. Its pricey and very much worth it.
Jules Basement is, in fact, in a basement, but it’s one of the best and most dramatic places to drink in the city - just know it’s reservation-only.
