Azul Histórico

Polanco
Haute Cuisine

Situated in the same historic mansion as the Downtown México hotel, this stylish restaurant is a head-turner in part because of its courtyard setting. Skulls made of sugar adorn each table, where diners are treated to reinvented classics like ceviche, tortilla soup, and guacamole (with fried grasshoppers) from chef Ricardo Muñoz Zurita. Try regional specialties like tikin xic fish from the Yucatán or chiles en nogada—a seasonal dish of stuffed poblano peppers with a walnut-pomegranate sauce.
