The New Vanguard of Mexican Chefs

Interesting article from Food Arts magazine on some of the new up and coming chefs in Mexico City.

There is also a link you can follow to a rather lengthy article on Enrique Olvera

      How long will you be there? Have a blast, the food is great :-)

      And if you eat at any of these places report back. It's been a while since I've been to Pujol and I haven't been to any of the new restos mentioned in the article. I'm thinking I might have to do a 3-day trip just to eat :-)

        I'll be there for 6 days and already have reservations at Pujol and Biko. Jay had suggested Maximo Bistrot to me out of the article but the other places are new to me as well. Originally when I started planning everything I was worried about a week being too much time; now I'm thinking it's not enough with all the places I want to eat and things I want to do.

          6 days in D.F. will barely scratch the surface :-)

              You mention Pujol (cocina de autor) and Biko (Spanish influence), and the possibility of Máximo Bistrot (Pujol influence). Have you allotted any time to 'regular' Mexican food?

                Here's my map with all the places I'm considering for reference:

                Feel free to critique and rip as you want. I don't know exactly where I'm going to eat or what days; will play most of it by ear. Plus whatever street food looks good to me at the time. I'm also going to do a food tour with Eat Mexico while I'm there. Pujol and Biko are the only ones I made reservations for ahead of time (with reason).
