In CDMX, Mexican cuisine concepts abound that not only stand out for their extraordinary gastronomic offer but also remain in the memory for their decoration and surroundings that invite you to spend hours and hours chatting with friends while enjoying mezcals, tacos, or a good Oaxacan mass. The next time you think about going to a Mexican cuisine restaurant that also has privileged architecture, pay attention.
For many years recognized as “the best restaurant in Mexico” and definitely a must if you consider yourself a fan of Mexican cuisine. Directed by renowned chef Enrique Olvera, his Mexican cuisine inspired by the roots of Oaxacan gastronomy is mixed with the latest culinary trends to result in a unique, delicious, and exclusive proposal. Its menu includes different preparations with mole, but without a doubt, the most iconic is mole made, inspired by the traditional Oaxacan, with more than 100 ingredients.
This restaurant has phenomenal architecture, whose main elements are wide spaces, lots of light, vegetation, and details in materials such as stone and wood. All with a contemporary and cozy style while allowing you to escape the stress of the city without leaving it.
Filigrana is sheltered inside a house surrounded by murals by the Mexican painter Rafael Cauduro and has an atmosphere that enhances Mexican traditions and customs in every detail, giving off an aroma that embraces you warmly from your arrival. Here you can enjoy different scenarios depending on your whim, your companions, and the time. For example, if one day you want a delicious coffee to wake up, you can go for yours to an independent bar and try fresh bread – 100% Mexican – such as piloncillo pigs, chinois, garibaldis, and succulent chocolate shells, among others.
El Bajío Historic Center
This restaurant dedicated to honoring Mexican cuisine and its traditions opened its branch number 19 in Mexico City on Calle de Bolívar 14 in the Centro Histórico, which was the last residence -between 1874 and 1876- of former President Antonio López de Santa Anna. After three years of restoration, this neocolonial mansion protected by the INAH reopens its doors. The ironworks, windows, stone columns, and the majestic staircase, among other details that have been preserved since the 19th century, play with the Mexican crafts selected by the architect and designer Luis Enrique Noriega, who with his talent has been in charge of dressing the different branches of “El Bajío”.
Its kitchen – directed by chef Josefina López – seeks to delight even the most demanding palates with dishes such as the traditional black mole or its exquisite short rib pozole. The best thing is that its facilities are a work of art, with a beautiful water mirror, large windows, wood everywhere, Puebla Talavera, and a contemporary style that will invite you to stay for hours in the place.
Carmela And Salt
One of the most welcoming and warm restaurants with that romantic accent that provides the best setting for a dinner with your partner. The menu for Carmela y Sal is in charge of Chef Gabriela Ruiz, who manages to transmit the culinary essence of Tabasco, the land where it was born, through ingredients that blend into creative and especially original dishes. The perfect combination of tradition, flavor, and innovation. We recommend that you order their “lie tostadas” to start. They are the must-see.
The place itself is a work of art. For example, when you sit at their tables, you can see a beautiful ceramic plate created by Adriana Díaz de Cosío, which represents the way corn looks through a microscope. It is that attention to detail that makes Cascabel a unique corner in every way. We could spend the whole day describing the impressive facilities of this place, where beautiful trees, terraces, windows, and plants contrast with materials such as stone, wood, very Mexican decorative details, and contemporary accents that mix tradition with modernity.
