If the neighboring hoods of Condesa and Roma don’t disabuse you of any ideas of Mexico City as a noisy, dirty, polluted metropolis, nothing will. This gentrified area, with its art nouveau architecture and café society, could be twinned with New York City’s West Village or L.A.’s Silver Lake, but with several advantages over those boho counterparts, including more trees and better nightlife.
Start your day with great coffee and a plate of huevos rancheros at Café Toscano (Orizaba 42), on the corner of Plaza Rio de Janeiro, and end it at Artemisia, a seductive absinthe bar in Roma. In between, pick up a quesadilla at the food market on Avenida Pachuca (Tuesdays only) and stroll through Parque España (Avenida Sonora), where muscle boys work out on the bars and dog-walkers promenade.
