On my last few trips to Mexico City, I've been trying the various restaurants that have taken traditional ingredients and recipes and "upscaled" them. I've seen this type of Mexican food referred to as "Nueva Cocina Mexica" or "La Alta Cocina."
So far, my favorite of these restaurants has been Aguila y Sol, but I've also enjoyed Pujol, and Izote (more traditional). Are there any that I've been missing? I heard that there's a place called Alkimia which is very innovative, but I can't seem to find out where it's located
On a more traditional bent, I've had fantastic meals at La Valentina and Villa Maria and have been told I need to try Hacienda de los Morales.
I'm always looking to try new places and will be in the D.F. next week, so any additional restaurants that you would suggest, based on the above, would be greatly appreciated.
