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). There’s a selection of “fusion” dishes — chipotle-rubbed swordfish, a rib-eye steak in a poblano-cream sauce — as well. And Laredo’s torta, centered on chicken prepared milanesa style, is a gem.
