Inaugural MICHELIN Guide Mexico Is Unveiled

The new MICHELIN Guide Mexico has been unveiled this month, the first of its kind for the American culinary hotspot with a total of 97 restaurants recommended for the guide.

The guide was highly anticipated thanks to the plethora of highly rated restaurants in the country and in its capital Mexico City in particular, featuring many regular venues in the World's 50 Best Restaurants round up. And many familiar names also featured in this new list from the MICHELIN Guide too.

In total, the Guide saw two venues awarded Two Stars, 16 receive One Star, six Green Stars handed out, and 42 Bib Gourmands as well.

The first Two Star venue is Quintonil, a captivating dining room from Chef Jorge Vallejo and his wife Alejandra Flores. The menu focuses on local product paired with impressive execution. Quintonil also sits ninth in the World's 50 Best Restaurants list this year.

The second restaurant to receive Two Star status is Pujol, 13th on the World's 50 Best, and no stranger to accolades. Chef-owner Enrique Olvera's contemporary space has long stood as one of the country's most famous addresses. Visits most regularly come here for the impressive seasonal tasting menu but the taco omakase is also a popular choice.

One Star restaurants include Em, Esquina Común, Rosetta, Sud 777, Taquería El Califa de León, Animalón, Conchas de Piedra, Damiana, Cocina de Autor Los Cabos, KOLI Cocina de Origen, Pangea, Los Danzantes Oaxaca, Levadura de Olla Restaurante, Cocina de Autor Riviera Maya, Le Chique and HA'.
