Mexico City. 9.5 days not Nine And A Half Weeks?

Steve Drucker | Sep 8, 2012 06:07 AM

For our visit upcoming this week, it feels like we've got laid out more than two months of places we'd like to eat. Our stay, however, is only nine days--partly in Roma Norte and partly along Reforma.

This is the list, pruned in recognition of the fact that suppers may well be apertifs and antojitos rather than full on dining occasions and in recognition of further ad-hoc eating in markets and fondas as can happen throughout the day.

Definite (Breakfast, Comida, Supper and upon occasion, para llevar)
Coox Hanal
El Hidalguense
El Caguamo
Fonda Mi Lupita
Con Sabor a Tixtla
Azul Condesa (for Noche Mexicana big night out)
Los Panchos
La Bella Italia (nearby ice cream)
Flor de Lis
El Cardenal
Maque Condesa

Dominique Patisserie
Café Raiz
La Morenita (in conjunction with the Cuban gelados)
Mercado Medellin
Mercado San Juan
Mercado Sabado San Angel
Casino Espanol
Alto Tango Ice Cream

On the bench:
Fonda Margarita
El Raco
La Veracruzana
Los Uruguayos
El Beso Huasteco
Don Toribo
Casita Buenos Aeres
Bistrot Maximo
Barra Criolla
El Jamil
La Bella Lula
Restaurant Diana

After reviewing the above, It's clear the focus is less about alta cucina and more about all things and establishments traditional. Suggestions and additions are eagerly sought.

Needless to say, all and any recent reports are greatly appreciated!
