International visitors are finally discovering what Mexico City residents have known for a long time: their city has some of the best restaurants in the world. Most of these restaurants—Dulce Patria, Pujol, and Quintonil among them—are inspired by traditional Mexican techniques, recipes, and ingredients, but bring contemporary touches to their menus. Most food is sourced locally; Mexico has a rich history of farming and fishing, and farm-to-table has been a way of life here for centuries. Visitors will generally find service to be exceptional, and it's not uncommon to spot a star chef emerging from the kitchen to greet diners at their tables.
