Lauriol Plaza Restaurant Review

: This popular Adams Morgan eatery often overflows at happy hour and attracts a hip, young crowd enlivened by the Latin atmosphere and pitchers of margaritas. The bar also offers tequila shots for the strong of heart. Mex and Tex-Mex dishes range from ceviche and tostones (Puerto Rican) to quesadillas, enchiladas, fajitas, chiles rellenos and tacos, plus more serious platters. This place is also a serious Sunday brunch hangout for the locals, who dig the meet-and-greet scene. The brunch menu includes some Yankee favorites, such as eggs Benedict and french toast, plus south-of-the-border dishes. If you like your eggs over easy, try the huevos rancheros served with a layer of black beans, tortillas and salsa.
