Food Scene
To try Mexican gourmet food, get to the Villa Maria. They have pretty much every piece of exotic food cooked nicely in a 100% Mexican environment. Let me warn you that this place is not cheap. However, it is worthy for a special occasion. This is where I have tried the best tequila ever plus the biggest (and most delicious) margaritas I've ever seen.

This is my favorite restaurant around. It is not precisely a restaurant, but as they call it a "Cafebrería". You can chose to sit on a regular table or on a couch. My personal preference is to go for a table for dinning and for a couch just for coffee and chat. They also have a good selection of teas and cocktails if you feel like having a drink any time of the day. The menu is very original. If you like books, then you will love their creative combinations. They use the names of authors and books to come up with the name of the dishes. No matter what time it is you can still order breakfast. They have "desayunos nocturnos" (night breakfast), which are great to eat informally.

Uruguay has given us a good choice to enjoy delicious meat cuts, salads, and pizza. This is a good place for a formal dinner. It is one of the best balance between price and servings.

Drinks & Nightlife
This is my favorite bar in Polanco. It is a good place to enjoy international beer with fries and cheese (my favorite combination!). Some nights, there is live music. If you are fond of 80s and 90s good rock, you are going to love it. There are tables inside and outside for smokers. A nice place to just chill out!

hen you are looking for fun at night, this is one of the best choices. There are bars with cheap beer and food up to around 2 o'clock in the morning when all places close. You will find a casino, karaoke places, places to dance, live rock music, and more! When the fun is over, you can have a hot-dog on the street (that's the rush hour for them), or go straight to Casa de Toño to get a pozole and a last beer. They are open 24/7. The Zona Rosa is a safe place to party. When you call it a night, just call for an Uber, you can be home in 10 minutes just paying 40-50 pesos.

Sightseeing
I love this monument. It is over 100 years, and stands still as an iconic place of Mexico. Ask me if you want to climb to the top. With enough time, I can make arrangements for the special permit. In fact, Paseo de la Reforma is a good place for sightseeing. Just walk and enjoy the sights. There are monuments on every corner, and many places to visit in the area.

Shopping
This is the closest mall. You can be there in 5 minutes walking (which is faster than any other means of transportation in rush hour). You can find everything from banks to dinning places, and few stores for shopping (you'll find furniture, books, clothing, stationary, and electronics). There is a Superama, which is a small market to grab food and prepare it home.

All malls are pretty much the same. You find the same brands and stores. The great thing about Antara is that it is a nice place to go to because it is a half-open space. If you are there in December, it has one of the greatest decorations in town, which include scheduled artificial snow-time.

The huge marketplace to buy bulk goods at a good price. If you are looking forward to buy a lot of supplies, this can be a good choice.

This is the closest convenience store. You can get food, any personal item you forgot and basic clothing. For most things, it is also the most affordable place around.
