Though the Garzas are based in Mexico City, they summer in Aspen, where quality traditional Mexican food is hard to come by. Have no fear—the Garzas are more than happy to give fellow high-altitude collectors a break from bison; they treat their guests to mole. “In my opinion, we’re the best restaurant in town,” Gabriela Garza told W magazine in 2016. When they’re home in Mexico City, they’re surrounded by an amazing collection that includes work by Richard Prince, Jeff Koons, Christopher Wool, and a prized Cy Twombly. They are also known for being frequent, generous supporters of local Mexico City outfits such as kurimanzutto.
