2Some of the more cynical would suggest the entire city should be avoided. The biggest attraction for business travelers and younger tourists was the nightlife primarily centered in the downtown area known as Barrio Antiguo. Sadly though the nightlife is but a shadow of what it was before the problems began.
If you are not on a tight budget I would recommend staying in San Pedro Garza Garcia, an upscale suburb which is south of downtown. It is relatively close to downtown, but is far more secure. It has some excellent, but expensive restaurants like El Granjero and El Siciliano. Two popular and well-known restaurants in the downtown area that specialize in regional norteno cuisine (grilled meats) are El Gran Pastor and El Rey del Cabrito. If you are thinking of something less expensive then you need to look in the downtown area, but there are areas where I wouldn't feel totally comfortable staying.
Monterrey has a number of museums and some natural attractions outside the city, but I don't know that there is anything that would be classified as "be sure to see or don't miss." Honestly unless you are going there for business I would say pass on Monterrey.
