The Needle: Casa Oaxaca (August 2007)

The place has a festive air, as if the owners had siphoned off some of the spillover crowd standing in line at nearby Lauriol Plaza. So far the cooking, for all its brightness and authentic ingredients, isn’t ready for prime time: The mole is more gentle than gutsy, some of the meats have been tough, and the drinks are too weak.

-This appeared in "The Needle: A Monthly Gauge of Restaurants on the Radar," in the August 2007 issue of The Washingtonian.
