For its inaugural selection, 18 Stars illuminate the MICHELIN Guide Mexico’s gastronomic heavens

  • The MICHELIN Guide has unveiled its first selection for Mexico, divulging details of the best restaurants in Mexico City, Oaxaca, Baja California, Baja California Sur, Quintana Roo and Nuevo León
  • The 2024 crop boasts a total of 157 restaurants, including 42 Bib Gourmands, 16 one MICHELIN Star and 2 two MICHELIN Stars establishments
  • 6 eateries receive the MICHELIN Green Star for their endeavors to promote more sustainable gastronomy

Today, the MICHELIN Guide revealed its initiatory Mexican selection, at a glittering ceremony held at the El Cantoral cultural center.

No fewer than 157 restaurants made a big impression with the Guide’s inspectors, who scoured the cities and regions of Mexico City, Oaxaca, Baja California, Baja California Sur, Quintana Roo and Nuevo León, searching for locales offering top-notch gastronomic experiences.

The MICHELIN Guide Mexico selection 2024 was prepared according to the Guide’s historic and universal methodology, applied by its inspector-experts worldwide, according to the five following criteria:

  • The quality of ingredients
  • The mastery of cooking techniques
  • Harmony of flavors
  • The personality of the chef as expressed in the dining experience
  • Consistency both across the entire menu and over time

“What a joy it is to honor the uniqueness of the Mexican gastronomic landscape in Mexico City. The first and very promising selection is an illustration of how the country is showcasing its regions, with their cultures and traditions that are as distinctive as they are distinguishable. From sophisticated restaurants honored with one MICHELIN Star, to bustling street ‘taqueria’, our inspectors were impressed by the constant culinary effervescence that is both authentic and indulgent,” explained Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides. “The regions’ strong identities are Mexico’s beating heart, attracting foodies and travelers on the lookout for remarkable experiences. The talented male and female chefs bring their local culture to the fore and thereby continue to assert Mexico’s position as a gastronomic iconic destination.”
