Rating: Stars . Restaurant Type: Casual Dining . Hamburgers . Cost: . U.S. based steakhouse chain Capital Grille offers prime aged steaks, seafood and burgers. First-class service in a sophisticated ambience.
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”.
Capital Grille’s franchise location in Mexico City offers highest-quality steaks and seafood, albeit with a hefty price-tag. It’s “the” place in CDMX to entertain clients.
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.
Quintonil uses indigenous ingredients in unique ways to create what we call Mexican gourmet cuisine. Great ambiance, service and execution.
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.
A menu developed by famed Spanish chef José Andrés. A unique and quirky, but sophisticated, decor. J by José Andrés has it all. Try the faux Spanish olives or the deconstructed Spanish omelet. Or any of the more traditional Spanish dishes raised to gourmet status by this talented kitchen.
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.
The decor is not quite right, but not as gaudy as Dulce Patria. Service staff seemed a bit confused and flustered. That didn’t really affect service after the first course however. The food was surprisingly good.
Elegant décor and near flawless execution of a sophisticated menu utilizing unique locale ingredients. Raíz earns one of the highest overall scores yet in our assessment of Latin American restaurants, exceeding nearby notorious restaurant, Pujol, in our assessement.
A comfortable ambiance, good service, and a creative menu put Carlota at the top of the list for upscale casual dining.
Fresh, local and unique ingredients, a fusion of Italian and Mexican influence, prepared and served in an an unassuming restaurant, is the calling card of Chef Elena Regadas. Don’t let the humble surroundings deceive you. Rosetta is top of the list for lunch or dinner in Mexico City’s Roma Norte.
Modern but warm and inviting ambiance. Great execution of modern Mexican fusion. First class service. One of Coma Beba’s Top 5 in Mexico City.
Rio Lerma in Cuauhtémoc has no shortage of restaurants. Some are chain restaurants like Fiebra de Malta and others are your typical, “I’ve got a recipe, I think I’ll open a restaurant” sort of establishment. Some good. Some bad.
