J&G Grill at St. Regis Mexico City
Bright and airy, the J&G Grill feels a bit like you’re outdoors — while indoors. Its understated style made it a classy place to grab a lunch. Fun fact: those stands are for purses. In Mexico, it’s considered bad luck to place your purse on the floor, as they believe your fortunes will leave through the bottom of it.

The blend of textures was perfection and the taste was intoxicating.
Avocado Pizza with Jalapeño, Cilantro, and Lime
They said Chef Maycoll Calderón was crazy when he envisioned an avocado pizza — they couldn’t have been more wrong! I have been dreaming of it ever since.
You’ve never had a margarita like this before! This margarita is refreshing without being overpowering. It’s perfect with lunch.
A mix of cultures and flavors is apparent at J&G Grill. The Veal Milanese may not be Mexican, but it was entirely enjoyable, with its crispy coating and tender meat, resting on a bed of Beefsteak tomatoes. The peppery bite of arugula is divine.
