On a recent trip, author Gary Shteyngart described Georgetown as the "current grungy (forgive me) neighborhood of the moment" and "industrially deformed." On that occasion, he dined at The Corson Building. Next time, he may want to check out Fonda La Catrina. This 70-seat Mexican cantina sources Painted Hills beef and Carlton Farms pork and is open for lunch and dinner. After a year and half of build out(of the old Tileworks building) and fundraising, owner Enrique Trejo opens up to the public this week. Chef Bobby(Robert M Palmquist) oversees the affordable menu($7-$14 range) offering simple Mexican fare such as tacos, enchiladas, and more complex dishes such as a moles.
