Laredo on Lafayette Square replaces Arcelia’s as the Mexican restaurant with a picturesque view of Lafayette Park. Laredo offers a selection of Mexican and Tex-Mex favorites presented with more attention to detail and bolder flavors than you’d expect, like enchiladas coated in a rich, smoky red sauce, or chicken in a nutty, dark-chocolate mole (pollo en mole).

I do not often order fish when dining out because it is so seldom that it is prepared correctly but I decided to take a chance with the Grilled Salmon with Pineapple Salsa. What a great surprise! This Grilled Salmon is the reason I do occasionally take a chance. I am glad I did because this dish is perfect. The salmon was exactly the way salmon should be with good grill marks and moist warm center.
