If you’re looking for a good group spot to grab dinner near Adams Morgan, check out Mayahuel Cocina Mexicana in Woodley Park. This Day of the Dead-themed restaurant is run by the same team as District Kitchen next door, and serves pitchers of margaritas and larger format Mexican dishes, like a whole branzino with green and red chile adobo and braised short ribs with huitlacoche salsa. If you’re stuck at the far end of the table and need to eat something else before you commit to a second round of margaritas, order some of the beef tongue tacos, too.
