Input sought for good "traditional" dinner spot within walking distance to DF Zocalo

Saludos a todos!

Our first night in D.F. we will get in late after a long day travelling. Therefore, we will save planned dining destinations in Condesa and Polanco for subsequent nights. I am looking for dinner suggestions for somewhere fairly traditional in the historical district that we can walk to and take in the atmosphere on the way. I know El Cardenal does not serve dinner. A touristy spot is ok, providing the food is great (although those two concepts so rarely go hand-in-hand).

Ideally, I would love somewhere super-traditional that has not given up on quality due to the constant influx of tourists that negates the need for repeat business. Does such a place exist? I appreciate that many people will want to point me towards previous discussions but felt a separate post was warranted due to the narrow nature of my request. Any help is truly appreciated. Thanks!!
