Good news in Borderstan restaurants. Cafe Salsa opened its doors Friday evening at 1712 14th NW, just north of R on the west side.

Luis and I happened to notice it was opening and got the last table in the first seating, at around 8:15. I am happy to report that we had a great meal.

The menu is eclectic Latin American–“Nuevo Latino Cuisine”–and similar to the owners’ first Cafe Salsa in Old Town Alexandria. Luis had a seafood dish… tuna, calamari and shrimp over mashed plantains.
