Sud 777 – Mexico City

Sud 777 – Mexico City

The restaurant has received nothing but good press. It was even featured on American chef Rick Bayless’s public television show in the USA, “Mexico, one Plate at a Time”.

Nicos – Mexico City

Nicos – Mexico City

This dining experience was so bad, in fact, that we’re adding Nicos to our list of overrated restaurants in Mexico City. It can proudly join Maximo Bistrot, and Biko on that list.

Fontina Trattoria – Juárez – Mexico City

Fontina Trattoria – Juárez – Mexico City

Fontina Trattoria is not your stereotypical Italian restaurant. It’s tastefully decorated with good food and service in a family-friendly setting. All at the best prices in town. Pizza, pasta and more.

Amaya – Juárez – Mexico City

Amaya – Juárez – Mexico City

Amaya is a more casual version of chef Jair Tellez’s Meretoro in Condesa. Ambiance is pleasant. Service was good. But unlike the flawless execution on our recent visit to Merotoro, there were multiple errors in execution on the entree course we were served at Amaya.

Anatol – Polanco – Mexico City

Anatol – Polanco – Mexico City

Fancy enough to rank as a formal dining. Casual enough to make you feel comfortable. Flawless execution and service. Traditional gourmet technique with the slightest dash of Mexican influence utilizing local ingredients. A bit pricey but nothing to balk at. A Top-5 in CDMX.

Nobu – Polanco – Mexico City

Nobu – Polanco – Mexico City

Beautifully designed and decorated. Outstanding service. Japanese cuisine elevated to gourmet status by famed chef Nobu Matsuhisa. Sea Bass in Dry Miso was outstanding. Sashima was less impressive.

Romina – Polanco – Mexico City

Romina – Polanco – Mexico City

I’m not sure I can even say I’ve really ever had great Italian food. Perhaps until tonight. I wasn’t in Brooklyn, New York. Nor in Milan. Oddly enough, the best Italian food I’ve had in my rather storied life is in Mexico City.
