16Check out Good Food in Mexico City: Food Stalls, Fondas and Fine Dining by Nicholas Gilman. This edition was published last December. You can also get an electronic version for your Kindle for $3.
I have the first edition from 2008. Sadly I have not been to Mexico City since then to use the book but it will be on the top of my packing list when I do go.

17Thanks SO much everyone. Chowhound is a great site, new to me and the discussions about Mexican restaurants I have copied to take with me. Also,I found Nicholas Gilman's blog "goodfoodmexicocity.blogspot.com". Uh,WOW! Terrific site with photos of restaurants, plated meals, extensive reviews of the meals and great writing style.If I were moving to Mexico City or staying there a long time I would buy his book in heartbeat and eat my way across town using him as a guide. If only it were so. (And no, am not this guy and I don't know him.) Check out his blog and you'll see what I mean.
Anonimo, I saw your recommendations on chowhounds...nice to see a familiar name on there. Good recommendations on there I think too. THanks for all the advice here...I see some patterns of recommendations from all these sources (deleting the Tripadvisor input mostly)that I am going to follow.
THanks so much for not just responding "hit the search feature".....
Anyone wanting more info should really check out those two sites: chowhound and goodfoodinmexicocityblog.......terrific! I have now been able to get a much better handle on where I want to eat and the Tripadvisor results mostly don't gibe with what I have found as I dug into the subject. And I know from my area (Guatemala) that local's suggestions carry way more weight than tourist's because local's favs. generally are the best. Tourists are limited in time and # of meals they can eat. In Mexico City I will be a tourist.....
