Mexico City - Two Dinner Tour

Going to Mexico City with a good friend of mine. Staying in Polanco at the W but totally willing to cab it for a must-have. We have two nights and an afternoon for a good lunch.

Looking for a good fine dining recommendation for dinner as well as some fun cant-miss spots for a more casual dinner / lunch. I love tequilla, so a place with a good selection would be nice.

I think I've been to Izote before - I was in Mexico City roughly three years with another friend and I took him there. Liked it but wouldn't go back.

  1. Aguila y Sol

    Had breakfast at El Bajio in Polanco last month and enjoyed it quite a bit.
    Friends ate comida at Contramar recently and really liked it.

      I had two great lunches, one at Contramar (seafood) and the other was Los Almendros (Basque). For fine dining, we had an outstanding dinner at Tezca,

        Los Almendros is Yucatecan not Basque.... could it have been another name?,4...

    2. Fancy: Aguila y Sol for dinner

      Casual: El Bajio (Polanco only) for dinner

      Contramar or El Bajio for lunch (Polanco or original location)

      Grab a tequila at La Valentina, afterwards - it's got lots of Mexican flavor, even if the food isn't the most rockin'
