Mexican food lovers who want a little privacy and less of a scene on Capitol Hill will find solace in the unpretentious Fogón, with the bar separated from the restaurant to make drinkers and families equally comfortable. The solid happy-hour menu (3–6 p.m. and 9 p.m.–close) will help out lighter wallets with ceviche, tostadas and quesadillas fritas on the cheap. Margaritas served with the cocktail shaker on the side add a little thrill to the many-paged selection of tequila cocktails, while platillos fuertes like the arroz con pollo and the milanesa earn big thumbs up. Lunch and dinner daily.
