Eat Your Way Through Mexico City

hosted by Chef Kevin Fonzo | June 16-20, 2021


In Mexico City, two food worlds exist side by side: the restaurants and the streets. It can be hard to know which sidewalk grills, market stalls, taquerías, and cantinas to visit if you’re not familiar with the city. On our journey, we’ll whisk you away from the tourist traps and take you to places that our local resident guides know and love. We want you to connect with Mexico City in a profound way, by tasting the food that residents eat and enjoy. You’ll learn the food’s history, the ingredients, the how’s and the why’s.
Each of our culinary experiences has been carefully crafted with partners on the ground to emphasize the deliciousness of the cuisine, the richness of Mexican gastronomic history and culture, and the vendors who prepare the food.

And who better to lead a food tour to one of the most vibrant cities in the culinary scene these days than Orlando's own Chef Kevin Fonzo?

Welcome to Mexico City

Upon landing, you are met by our chauffeur and whisked away to your home for 4 nights. After settling down at your hotel, we hold a late lunch at one of our favorite and most eclectic eateries in El Centro. We continue with a fun private walking tour of Mexico's main sites, all while enjoying some stops at local street vendors. Our welcome dinner is hosted by one of Mexico City's most iconic gastronomic restaurants

Day 3
Our 3rd day in Mexico city is bound to leave you wanting more. We start the morning with a tasting at Mezcal Tequila (Experience three distinct boutique production distillations & discover the incredible variety of formats Mezcal embodies). It is followed by a Tequila mixology class, an archaeology tour, and a food experience focused on ancient traditions and cuisines. We know you will need time to recover, so the rest of the day is at leisure. Tonight, we uncover yet another incredible Michelin-starred restaurant, paired with South American wines.

Day 4
Our last full day in Mexico City starts with an early morning and sunrise hot air balloon flight over the pyramids of Teotihuacan. We return to the city around noon where our guests enjoy an afternoon at leisure. Our Concierge team can organize additional private tours, or provide assistance recommending the "must-see" of Mexico City. We regroup for cocktails just before our farewell dinner held at yet another memorable Michelin experience. Our meal is, of course, paired with lovely wines.

It Does Not Have To End

Our home in Mexico City

Built in the 17th century, Downtown Hotel is an historic, former palace providing 17 beautiful suites - some with attractive wrought-iron balconies overlooking the street, others facing the courtyard. Further charming features include a bar and swimming pool on the rooftop with city views and all within just two blocks of Mexico City’s central square, El Zocalo.

The red volcanic rock of the walls, the wooden beams, vaulted ceilings and handmade clay floor tiles lend a dramatic sense of history to this delightful residence. High above the city bustle, relax by the pool on Downtown Hotel’s rooftop and savor a drink from the bar.

A short walk from Downtown Hotel and you are in El Zocalo Square bordered by the cathedral, Palacio Nacional, and the ruins of the Aztec Tenochtitlan, including the Templo Mayor. Well worth a visit is nearby Mercado de Xochimilco, a perfect way to start this foodie journey.
