More than two decades ago, in May 2000, a gastronomic landmark that would revolutionise the Mexican culinary scene was born: Pujol, the gem founded by the renowned chef Enrique Olvera. Since its opening, this restaurant has taken diners on a sensory journey that merges culinary tradition with a contemporary and avant-garde vision.

Pujol’s essence lies in its gastronomic proposal, which revolves around the diverse cuisines of Mexico. Olvera skillfully tailors the menu according to the seasons, favouring local ingredients obtained under rigorous sustainability and social responsibility criteria. This unique combination and meticulous attention to Mexican gastronomy have made Pujol a reference point for lovers of fine dining.

International recognition was quick to follow. Currently, Pujol ranks ninth on the coveted list of The 50 Best Restaurants of the World, while also holding the title of the best restaurant in North America according to the same list. Additionally, it is a prominent part of the Relais Chateaux network, an association that promotes culinary and cultural diversity in over 550 hotels and restaurants worldwide. Equally important is its certification as a B Corporation, acknowledging its commitment to using business power to address social and environmental issues.

However, beyond the accolades, it’s the culinary experience that captivates Pujol’s visitors. Here, diners have the option to enjoy two distinct experiences: an exquisite classic tasting menu in the restaurant’s dining room and an innovative taco proposal at the bar, inspired by the Japanese Omakase. This duality reflects the versatility and creativity that characterise this iconic establishment.

Behind every exceptional dish lies a team of passionate professionals. The head chef, Jesús Durón, along with the beverage director, Marianna Ramírez Ortega, and the general manager, Miguel González, are key figures in Pujol’s success and reputation.

Pujol is not merely a restaurant; it’s a culinary experience that blends history, innovation, commitment, and above all, the heart of contemporary Mexican gastronomy. A visit to this culinary sanctuary is more than a meal; it’s a journey that awakens the senses and celebrates the diversity and richness of Mexican cuisine.
