Tables are set for customers at Pujol, one of the world's 50 best restaurants, in Mexico City
Tables are set for customers at Pujol, one of the world's 50 best restaurants, near Polanco's swanky hotel district in Mexico City May 15, 2014. An ancient megalopolis built in a drained lake rimmed by mountains, Mexico City consistently flies under the radar. Despite lacking the samba-steeped allure of Rio de Janeiro or the chic intellectualism of Buenos Aires, Mexico City also feels like a city on the up, benefiting from more than a decade of progressive city administrations who cleaned up the atmosphere, legalized gay marriage, introduced a successful bike-sharing scheme and spruced up the austere historic center. From high-end molecular gastronomy to endless street stalls selling insect-stuffed quesadillas, you're never likely to go hungry in Mexico City. Picture taken May 15, 2014.
