I recently had the chance to try out Izote, which is one of many high-end and excellent restaurants in Polanco (check out the interactive map).  I don’t review restaurants, so I’ll only say that, one, I didn’t try their tacos and, two, the ceviche was outstanding.

Although I tend to prefer my food-experimentation to be taken curbside, Mexico City has an extraordinary high-end restaurant scene.  A popular specialization is Nouveau Mexican (a term I just made up), which involves modern, often fresher, interpretations of traditional Mexican dishes.  The extraordinary variation in Mexican cuisine — despite my focus, no it’s not all tacos! — makes for expansive and well-rounded menus that are full of creativity.  

A typical dinner (multiple courses, drinks, wine, etc.) at one of these restaurants will run about $40-80 per person… a bargain.
