Mexico City - on a Monday night in July!

Dave MP | May 20, 201508:25 PM

We are flying through Mexico City in July and have a long layover, so I'm hoping to get into the city for a bit. I was last in Mexico City in September 2012, and had a great time. I wrote about it here:

We will be arriving on a Monday at about 3 PM, and then our flight out is not until 1 we have about 10 hours. I really liked the evening we spent in Coyoacán so I was thinking about heading in that direction, but I could be convinced to head to a different neighborhood instead, especially if there were good churros and chocolate there.

But mostly I'm looking for a restaurant for dinner that would be relaxing but casual. We could (and may) end up eating at a street stall like we did in Coyoacan last time, but I'm curious about sit-down places. Probably don't want anything super heavy, since we'll be flying later in the night.

We loved Contramar and would potentially go back there if they were opened a bit later (they close at 6 pm on weekdays). Any favorites in that price range, or cheaper, in Coyoacan? Or other options to consider?

Also not sure about how we'll get around (bus vs. metro vs. taxi), but I think we'll be able to leave luggage in the airport (or have it checked directly through). We both speak Spanish, so I'm pretty comfortable getting around.

Thanks in advance!
