Adoro Mexican Grille: Saturday Lunch on the "Westside"

As promised I helped out with DCBID's housing tour on Saturday and laughed a bit when Justin referred to the Financial District as Downtown's westside.

Afterward we wanted to get some lunch, which interestingly proves to be a much harder task than it is in the Historic Core. There's simply not much open if you're looking for a sit-down lunch around the Financial District on the weekend.

We were quite pleasantly surprised to find that the newly opened Adoro Mexican Grille has both Saturday and Sunday hours. Somehow when Adoro opened I had this idea in my head that it was a chain and probably just another place geared toward the business side of Downtown. Turns out I was wrong on all counts.

We had a very filling meal and a nice talk with the owner. She was very interested in finding out how to reach out to locals and the residential buildings. In my opinion, being open for both lunch and dinner all weekend is a great start.

Adoro Mexican Grille, on the ground floor of 7+Fig. Open 10am to 10pm.
