After a morning at the Museo Nacional de Arte, walk about 10 minutes to the Zócalo, Mexico City’s main square, for lunch at the aptly named Balcón del Zócalo. It overlooks the square from the fourth floor of a beautiful landmarked building, with impressive views of the cathedral and the surrounding neighborhood. The a la carte menu is eclectic and predominantly Mexican, with things like plump gyozas filled with tender cochinita pibil and octopus tiradito with recado negro. Reservations aren’t mandatory, but making one can save some time, especially on weekends when it’s crowded with local families visiting the area.
