Latin American in Logan Circle, U Street & Columbia Heights

Loud, fun and clattering, Tico draws a young and arty crowd for its nouveau tacos, small plates and 140 tequilas. Top honors go to the scallop ceviche, the Manchego cheese fritters and hibiscus margaritas. Vegetarians get some love from the edamame tacos, roasted cauliflower and other dishes. This bright-hued, mural-splashed eatery is popular, so make reservations.
