One of the 30 best restaurants to do business in Latin America

Why choose it: Nearly 55 years of culinary history are served in every dish served at El Cardenal. In that time, the restaurant went from one location to four more but the one located in front of the legendary Alameda Park (adjacent to the Palacio de Bellas Artes, the Torre Latinoamericana, in the Old Center of the Mexican capital) just celebrated 20 years as the place to see and be seen by politicians and business leaders. Those who want to lobby for their business or simply want to delight a business partner know that El Cardenal is a winning option. In addition, you eat very well as the chefs have followed the tradition set by its founders of respecting the gastronomic principles of Mexican cuisine.

Business tips: The main hall is one of the epicenters of the traditional political and business class in Mexico City. As such, the place is in high demand and often requires a reservation. For those looking for a more intimate experience, you can ask to reserve one of the private rooms. Some local entrepreneurs book rooms at the Hilton Hotel (within which the restaurant is located). Likewise, many entrepreneurs are quoting there some of the digital nomads who have become a relevant element in Mexico City’s workforce.

Average cost per person (without drinks): MXN$600 (USD$32)

Location: Av. Juarez No. 70, inside the Hilton Mexico City Reforma hotel, Mexico City.
