Cinco de Mayo at MXDC

MXDC Cocina Mexicana, Celebrity Chef Todd English’s restaurant in downtown DC, is offering up several specials throughout the weekend to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Starting on Friday, May 3, at 11:30am, MXDC will have seven house-made margaritas, priced to celebrate at $7 each and available all weekend. Patron shooters and Patron XO will also be available for $7 each, all weekend long. HungryLobbyist also got the chance to try some new items coming to the menu (like the awesome pastrami tacos pictured below). I also highly recommend taking your guac ordering game up a notch with the lobster and corn guacamole.
