Concierge.com's insider take:
Chef Enrique Olvera has often been described as being at the vanguard of cocina mexicana, and his restaurant Pujol makes almost every local's short list of the city's best. This small Polanco restaurant is elegantly understated, with whitewashed walls, discreet track lighting, and simple, minimalist tables and chairs, letting the dishes take center stage. Olvera focuses on Mexican ingredients, sometimes in the service of traditional recipes (duck with mole) and other times in more European preparations, such as avocado ravioli with corn foam, or venison carpaccio in banana puree. The restaurant's 200-bottle wine list, which includes several Mexican vintages, is an unusually broad selection in this not-so-oenocentric city. The menu changes seasonally, so the restaurant deserves repeat visits. You'll also want to dress for the occasion: Most men wear suits or jackets. If you'd prefer a more casual night out, try Olvera's spot at the hip Distrito Capital hotel in the Santa Fe area of town.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 1:30 to 5 pm and 7 to 11:30 pm.
