Even a couple years ago, Arcelia's was one of the few dining hot spots in the Lafayette Square neighborhood. But the past few years have been good to the district, with several solid additions, like Ricardo's, Sqwires and the Chocolate Bar. Arcelia's is still a favorite, with portions that are more than generous and a menu that's not huge, but offers plenty of options, including a few, nice vegetarian items. When in doubt, order a combination plate and save just a little bit of room for flan.
