For over 15 years, Enrique Olvera’s award-winning Pujol has been championed as the quintessential fine-dining experience of Mexico City, even ranking among the world’s top 50 best restaurants. Marrying contemporary and traditional Mexican culinary cultures, Pujol’s six-course tasting menu features elevated interpretations of regional street food, among them a thousand-day-aged “mother” mole. Reopened in 2017 after an extended absence, Olvera’s celebrated concept takes on a more laid-back neighborhood experience in its new, mid-century-modern space (with not a white tablecloth in sight). Pujol is definitely worth its five-star tab, and advance reservations are recommended.
