Bypass the main-floor restaurant at this recent Barracks Row addition and head for the staircase—it leads to one of the nicest roof terraces south of Pennsylvania Avenue. The wood paneling, breezy vibe, and salsa soundtrack give the space a Caribbean feel even though the menu is technically Mexican. Margaritas come in flavors ranging from passionfruit to prickly pear. Insider tip: Wednesdays, quesadillas are half price when you buy a drink. Open daily.
