Jim Johnston's "Mexico City: An Opinionated Guide for the Curious Traveler" is the favorite resource for these many visitors, who inevitably fall in love with this wonderful town, thanks, in great measure, to this guide!
Jim has a very good Mexico City blog as well.
We were only there for 4 days but the author's advice and suggested walking tours were extremely helpful in each part of the city we visited. We rode the metro too - it's a lot less crowded after 10.
The author has some nice restaurant suggestions, but we used our phones for Yelp and Trip Advisor, since more restaurants have opened since then. I'm so glad this book was available. We just got back and can't wait to visit again!
jim johnstons' guide, a mex city expat/local with discerning taste,breaks down this immense city into digestible pieces of essential info for the tourist or even resident..simply put: it's the best way to experience the city! I followed his restaurant suggestions; it worked out brilliantly, though I later suffered from a food coma and swollen face from the constant eating....His suggestions ran the gamut from food stalls( tacos,tostadas!)to world famous establishments, i.e., pujol restaurant( try their mole).
Requirements: Visit the archaeology museum( great insider tips in the book),eat Mexico tour, kahlos' pad, and follow Jims' walking tours in the book, especially Roma and condesa walking tours...ciao
