In addition to multiple national celebrations, here are five unique things to do in September in Mexico City.
This boutique opened in 2013 in the Roma neighborhood with the purpose of encouraging the national market to consume designs produced in the country.

Bowie Cocina de Humo
Bowie is an innovative restaurant in the Roma neighborhood by Chef Rodrigo Carrasco. This is a kitchen where the essential ingredient of each dish is smoke. Yes, you read that right! Seeking to use it as an ingredient and not only as a cooking method. The concept emerged in 2012 during a Christmas dinner, where the chef used the chimney’s fire to create and cook, capturing the flavor of firewood and coal embers. Some of the dishes you can’t miss at Bowie include the beet carpaccio, bullfighter octopus, and charred corn. Pair these unique creations with their delicious gin and tonics.

Chiles en Nogada de Fonda Mayora
We Mexicans know that with the arrival of September comes the chance to enjoy delicious chiles en nogada, highly iconic of Mexican cuisine. One of my favorite this season is served at Fonda Mayora in the Condesa neighborhood. This restaurant uses the same recipe as the famous Nicos restaurant by Chef Gerardo Vázquez Lugo. Using fresh ingredients brought one day prior from Puebla, achieving the perfect sweet and savory balance.
