One free day while on business--suggestions please

Hello,

I am traveling on business and have 1 off day to explore the area around the Marriott Reforma Hotel near the US Embassy). I speak some spanish, have traveled extensively, and will be by myself. I love good food, open markets, and am not afraid to travel on the subway system. Any recommendations for a good local restaurant, transportation advice, general things I might do? Thanks so much, have a great day.

Go see the historic center - Zocalo, cathedral, Templo Mayor, walk around and experience. You may find a place that catches your eye for food. You can walk (say start at Bellas Artes) in 25 minutes. For dinner go to Fonda El Refugio on Londres street just before Florencia in the Zona Rosa - also a walk from your hotel.

Other option is sit on the Turibus for a full round and see Centro and other parts.
