"I love Dino's Grotto. We eat here frequently and have never been disappointed. They've got fantastic vegetarian options, which I really appreciate. I ordered the pasta with funghi (mushrooms) this last visit and it was perfectly done. We got several appetizers and contorni as well--everything was amazing. Almond torte for dessert. Service was attentive and well-paced. I'm looking forward to another visit soon."

 Casa Oaxaca
Casa Oaxaca
In 2007, we opened Casa Oaxaca in Washington, D.C., a traditional restaurant that brings the flavors and colors of Mexico to the capital city of U.S. Our main objective is to give Washingtonians a better exposure to the richness and diversity of Mexican cuisine. At Casa Oaxaca, mole sauces are our specialty and we have six types that you will be able to taste with chicken, beef, seafood or tortillas.

"Everything we ordered was fantastic. Service was attentive without being overwhelming. We ordered a salad to share, an appetizer to share, and 2 main dishes, and the timing was perfect. Great place for vegetarians as well. They make some traditionally meat dishes as vegetarian, so I get to try things I've never eaten before. Love this place!"
