My husband and I will be spending 5 days in Mexico City in May, arriving on a Thursday afternoon and leaving on Monday afternoon. We're staying at the Camino Real. I have a proposed eating/sightseeing schedule, but I could use more local advice. My husband is from Mexico originally, so language should not be an issue. Please critique!

Lunch: Maria Bonita (for ant eggs?) or El Fogoncito (what to order?) or any other suggestions near our hotel?
Sightseeing: Anthropology museum
Dinner: 9p reservations at Pujol

Breakfast: El Bajio
Lunch: Contramar (what to order?)
Sightseeing: National Museum (Diego Rivera murals), Templo Mayor
Dinner: 9p reservations at Izote

Lunch: Gruta
Dinner: 9p reservations at Jaso

Lunch somewhere, maybe the market in Coyoacan
Sightseeing: Frida Kahlo museum, Diego Rivera/Frida Kahlo House
Margaritas at San Angel Inn (do I need reservations for margaritas?)
Dinner: 9p reservations at Solea

1p reservations at Tezka

Thanks in advance for your advice and suggestions!
