The capital city of Mexico is a global cultural hub. Museo Jumex houses the largest private contemporary art collection in Latin Americaâ€”from Orozco to Warholâ€”and the $70 million Museo Soumaya features a top floor full of Auguste Rodin sculptures. Gabriela Camara and Pablo Bueno present unique Baja California-inspired surf and turf small plates at MeroToro in the fashionable Colonia Condesa nabe and famed chef Enrique Olveraâ€™s Pujol, is not only widely considered the countryâ€™s best restaurant, with Olveraâ€™s unique spin on traditional Mexican fare, but since its inception in 2000, it has maintained a top-20 status on just about every notable world food list. Also upending the unexpected: the St. Regis Hotel Mexico CityÂ with its contemporary art and high-end, modern decor. The impeccable condo-sized suites discourage venturing outside into the D.F. (Distrito Federal, as the city is also known), and the premium seafood and sirloin at Michelin starred chef Jean-Georgesâ€™s J&G Grill, one of the hotelâ€™s three restos, is on par with any other eatery in this city of boundless culinary choices.
