Lunch vs Dinner in Mexico City

bhill | Aug 16, 201308:43 AM

I'm heading to Mexico first week of September and am making reservations at some of the higher end foodie-type destinations I've read about on the board.

My question is whether there's a difference between getting lunch or dinner at some of these places. I understand that lunch is the main meal of the day, and can be formal and lengthy.

But many tacquerias and fondas may close by 8 or 9 pm, which would be my ideal dinner time. My impression is that I should do street food and such during the day and eat fancy dinners at night.

Does that seem right?
