Oyamel Cocina Mexicana
Authentic Mexican ingredients and techniques taken to a level of creativity that you won't expect.
Perhaps DC’s most influential chef, José Andrés never misses a chance to innovate and adapt. At Oyamel, his head chef Omar Rodriguez oversees a menu that starts with zippy ceviche and decadent guacamole and graduates to dishes like chicken tamales and tacos built around grasshopper, steak, and other Mexican vegetables and herbs. At breakfast, order the Brunch Taco. It’s a housemade pork-fat flour tortilla with scrambled egg, chorizo, potatoes, refried black beans, and tomato-serrano salsa.
