What are the can't miss sights, restaurants and happenings in Mexico City from January 18-21? My boyfriend and I are going to Mexico City for a impromptu three-day trip and would love some neighborhood, restaurant/bar/cafe and sightseeing suggestions!

This is both of our first trips to Mexico, though I've traveled around southern Africa, most of Western Europe, and the Middle East before. He's more of a novice traveler, so we won't be roughing it too much. We're landing in the afternoon on Jan 18th, and flying out again the afternoon of Jan 21st, so we will have two full days and two half days.
The current plan is to get a room via AirBnB - Condesa seems like a good choice of neighborhood to be near to transit and a good restaurant/nightlife scene. Any thoughts or things we should be aware of?
We both really want to see Teotihuacan, and I want to see either the Dolores Olmedo Museum or the Frida Kahlo Museum, but otherwise we are wide-open. There are so many options, we're a bit overwhelmed! Not as interested in monuments/palaces/historical buildings, and I think the Museum of Anthropology will be too much given the short time frame. What are the highlights of smaller-scale, worthwhile, but maybe a bit offbeat attractions?
Food and Drink
This is the really challenging part, as there are so many options! I am really into food, and would love recommendations for great taquerias, restaurants, street food, cafes, etc. We are not huge party people, and are more into chatting bars than lounge-y nightlife.
