This was the June restaurant group outing. Alero's was very accessible to metro. In fact the metro stop was in the same block. The waiters informed us that Alero's style cuisine is Tex Mex style. The decor reminded me of an old Mexican Restaurant I visited in Cozemel. We were seated upstairs which included the AARP group only. There was a bar downstairs and seating outside. Many patrons were outside as it was a very nice day. I tried a frozen mango margarita which was very good. I ordered the chicken fajita which was a bit overcooked, dry and bland. Perhaps it was one of those days. There was a mix up with how we had requested the checks which caused us a few problems, however it was good to get together with the group.
I have to admit I was a trifle disappointed in the restaurant. It was nice that they had us all together--family-style-- and the atmosphere was pleasant enough; the wait-persons were very accommodating and bent over backward to make us feel comfortable and welcome; but, the food was pretty lousy. I had the mariscos saltado and there were more onions and peppers than mariscos. I Ieft half the plate filled--with onions and peppers. The chips were good, though and I always enjoy the camaraderie. We foodies are a fun group so the conversation made up for the food.
