Mexico City isn't a go-to destination for exceptional Italian food for most—unless they've previously tried Elena Reygadas's food. Reygadas received the Veuve Clicquot Prize for Latin America's Best Female Chef, with judges describing meals at her Rosetta a "life-affirming dining experience." The restaurant is located within a colonial-era townhouse, an elegant, warm setting for food that's prepared with obvious attention and care. Reygadas, who is Mexican, brings her own roots to bear on the dishes, but Italian influences are evident, too, above all with the handmade pasta. The menu changes along with the seasons and availability of ingredients, but expect plates like risotto with sea urchin, gnocchi with oxtail, and for dessert, rosemary ice cream.
