What is the best one day itinerary for visiting Munich?

My wife and I will be touring Germany this Spring on a 25th Anniversary trip.  We enjoy historical and cultural sites and good food.

On the same trip we visited Dachau, we spent about 3 "total" days in Munich at the beginning and end of our two week drive around southern Germany.  We enjoyed doing some local things (visited/walked around the English Garden-watched the "surfers" along the brook, watched a pick-up soccer game), tourist necessities (watch the clock turn at the hour on the Marienplatz, had a beer and brat at Hofbräuhaus) and a few less "necessary" historical places (Munich Residenz was beautifully restored after WWII and included details of the process of rebuilding, Nymphenburg Palace-beautiful castle just a bit out of town with gorgeous gardens).  Those two me were our highlights and I would recommend them all (although, with only a day-the Schloss may be a bit too far out of the way).

One of the best meals (and experiences) we have ever had was dining on traditional Bavarian food at Andechser am Dom.  The food was excellent, the Germany Riesling was dry and perfect and the atmosphere was the amazing experience (communal tables).  We had the most wonderful time!  And it's close to the cathedral and Marienplatz so convenient when you only have one day.

Definitely get something to eat at one of the beer halls in Marienplatz, walk through the Englischer Garten it is a really beautiful park, and if you are looking for more refreshments the Chinesischer Turm is a hot spot for a beer and pretzel. 

If you are a history buff you will enjoy seeing the Feldherrnhalle which is the site of Hitler's Beer Hall Putsch.  Odeonsplatz is right there, which is also nice to walk through. The Munich Residenz isn't a MUST SEE so if you don't have time don't stress to fit it in. We liked Nymphenburg Palace far more if you want to check out a castle while you're there.
