Pujol restaurant  located in the neighborhood of Polanco in Mexico City was listed among “The World’s Top 50 Restaurants 2012” as organized and published by Restaurant magazine. Pujol was ranked at # 36, rising several positions from last year’s # 49.
The list is created from The World’s 50 Best Restaurants  Academy, an influential group of over 800 international leaders in the restaurant industry, each selected for their expert opinion of the international restaurant scene. The panel of judges is comprised by food critics, chefs, restaurateurs and highly regarded ‘gastronomes’.
As the organizers’ profile reports, Pujol’s head chef Enrique Olvera “has ditched the elaborations on classic dishes his Mexico City restaurant was previously renowned for, in favor of those that are market-inspired.” The profile also adds, “Pujol’s food nods to a strong cultural legacy with traditional ingredients reworked into new dishes by the restaurant’s R&D staff: coffee, corn and flying ants are toasted and ground, stuffed into a dried pumpkin and wrapped in corn leaves. The staunchly traditional approach is paying significant dividends.”
Pujol restaurant is located at Francisco Petrarca 254 in Polanco, Mexico City, just a few minutes away from the Mexico City International Airport. For more information about the Pujol restaurant, visit www.pujol.com.mx .
