Martha's Guide to Mexico City

The Martha Stewart Show, November 2011

Experience a Martha-style Mexico City trip with visits to incredible places that would delight any culture seeker -- restaurants that combine ancient traditions with new approaches, modern museums with world-class art, and one of the largest city parks on the planet.

What to See

Chapultepec Park

Mexico City's 1,600-acre crown jewel of a park is one of the largest urban green spaces in the world, with twice the land mass as New York's Central Park. Chapultepec Park welcomes cyclists, canoers, and joggers on a daily basis, and it's also home to several fascinating museums.

Merced Market

Mexico City's largest market is a feast for the senses, with rows and rows of chile peppers, multicolored corn varieties, cactus leaves, and other types of fresh produce. Merced also plays host to a number of taco and tamale vendors, making it a convenient spot to snack on some of the city's famous street food.

Soumaya Museum

Mexico City's newest museum is housed in an impressive sculptural building designed by architect Fernando Romero. Named after the late wife of Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim, whose art collection comprises the museum's holdings, Soumaya Museum is free to the public (soumaya.com.mx).

Where to Eat

Azul Condesa

Chef and food anthropologist Ricardo Munoz Zurita has dedicated his life to authentic Mexican cooking, and it shows in his acclaimed restaurant Azul Condesa. The menu is filled with Yucatan specialties and sophisticated, inventive dishes that use traditional ingredients (azulcondesa.com).

Dulce Patria

Located in Mexico City's lovely Polanco neighborhood, chef Martha Ortiz's Dulce Patria restaurant takes inspiration from classic Mexican street food. With modern takes on classic foods like tortilla chips and corn on the cob, the restaurant is known for its stunning visual presentations.

Izote

Izote is an excellent restaurant owned by chef Patricia Quintana, founder of Mexico City's first culinary institute. The popular spot is a tribute to traditional Mexican cooking, and its dishes are filled with fresh, indigenous ingredients.

Fuga Chocology

This specialty chocolatier puts Mexican ingredients in the spotlight, lacing its cocoa creations with mamey and guanabana fruits, chipotle chiles, and other local flavors (fugachocology.com.mx).

    Thank you for doing the show on Mexico City. I am a new Grandmother to be at the end of January and the other Grandmother is from Mexico City 15 min walk from the bikes. It was so wonderful to have seen your show to bridge the communication/language gap and have accurate information to talk about with her. I now look forward to taking a trip to see her and her lovey Mexico City some day. Thank you!
