Been There, Do This: Mercado Roma in Mexico City

During a recent visit to Mexico City, there were several times when I thought to myself: Wow, I wish we had a dining experience like this in Los Angeles. I was surprised to find many locations where the ambience impressed me as much as the food.

Two celebrities are in Mexico City on the same day. It’s a sprawling area, so are they likely to ever tread the same ground? Well, the day I was at Museo Nacional de Antropologia (National Museum of Anthropology), both musician Robert Plant and “Saturday Night Live” head writer/cast member Colin Jost were both spotted poking around the museum’s 23 permanent exhibit halls.
