Azul y Oro - how to get to the restaurant

Your instructions are based on the use of the Turibus. You can also get there taking the Metrobus that goes along Avenida Insurgentes. Get off at the CU (Ciudad Universitaria) stop and then get the PumaBus to the Zona Cultural. The Metrobus costs mx$5 (plus mx$15 for the card). The PumaBus is free.

good take-out in Condesa (DF)?

This is mainly Japanese isn't it?
Some other places that came out in looking for alternatives are:
Delirio de Monica Patiño
Fresh by Diego
La Buena Tierra
Do you know these places?
I will try to find out which restaurants do take out

good take-out in Condesa (DF)?

I'll be visiting an elderly relative who lives in Condesa and while reluctant to go to a restaurant, likes all kind of food. It would be nice if every time I show up, I bring some tasty prepared food to share. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Two Nights in Colonia Roma

If you liked Bistro Mosaico, there are two other nice bistros nearby: Photo Bistro (Citlaltépetl 23 corner with Amsterdam) and Bistrot Rojo (Amsterdam 70).
For another place with typical food (this time from Puebla), consider Casa Merlos (off Observatorio behind the large Preparatoria). They open only for comida and they close Mon-Wed. Check the NYT (Jan 28) for a review.

Where to go for food and adventures in Mexico?

If you are going to San Cristobal, consider the following itinerary: Fly to Tuxtla Gutierrez, go straight to Chiapa del Corzo and take a boat tour of the Cañon del Sumidero. Continue to San Cristobal. Visit on a day trip (as suggested above) Chamula & Zinacatan. Go to Palenque (stop in Agua Azul) and visit the ruins. Go in a (long) day trip to Yaxchilan (fantastic ruins in the middle of the jungle with howling monkeys). Fly back from Villahermosa. I'm not sure that the food would be that special, but it would address your girlfriend's interest for outdoor adventures and beautiful surroundings.
