Fodor's Review

The subtly lit interior is like a fine suit: understated and elegant, with starched napery, navy walls, and a few silver accessories. Service is hushed and artful. Indeed, the setting and the staff completely recede during the meal so you can focus on the food. Internationally acclaimed chef Enrique Olvera continuously reinvents traditional Mexican dishes and their presentation, and is largely responsible for the country's gastronomic revolution. For locals as well as tourists, the experience can be as educational as it is hedonistic, and the menus are prix fixe only to create a holistic flavor experience—skip one dish and you'd feel as if something were missing. The tableware complements the food: a simple white plate to show off coloration, a beakerlike vessel to display a layered creation, a lidded gourd with traditional carvings to hold an equally traditional soup. Despite the tailored setting and haute cuisine, Pujol is a dressy-casual place; reservations aren't required, but really are a good idea. Bringing children under 12 is discouraged.
