(Note those delicious tacos aren’t from El Centro D.F., but now I really want tacos.)

I think it’s the combination of it being Cinco de Mayo week and my love for Mexican food that has El Centro D.F. as our Tweet of the Week winner.

So far it has less than 150 followers, but the restaurant is only one day old! It’s a good number if you look at it that way. El Centro D.F. (or @ElCentroDF)bills itself as DC’s “Premier Taqueria & Tequileria,” and according to my friends who tried it out yesterday, it just might be.

If you like thinking big, El Centro D.F. spans three entire floors.  In the ground floor you have the taqueria, below that there’s a tequileria, and then there’s a fabulous rooftop. You can thank Richard Sandoval and Kaz Okochi (also behind Masa 14)  for bringing us this Mexican comfort food.


El Centro D.F. is located at 1819 14th St., NW. The closest metro stop is U Street-Cardozo (Green/Yellow Lines). For more information, call 202-328-3131.
