Lares on Pico was always my safe backup Mexican restaurant but since the fire they have changed. Anyone else notice? Gone are the cloth napkins, portion size has been cut, the margaritas are weaker than ever and the food is inconsistent. They are pushing hard on the sales. We were asked 4 times if we wanted guacamole. A few weeks back, I finished a Manny Lane burrito! In the 12 years I have been going to Lares I have never finished one. I always had a bit left for breakfast the next morning...mmmm. Now its the size of a very average burrito. Usually 2 margaritas and I am haaaapppy. Last visit, I felt like I had 2 margaritas of sour mix and a drop of Don Julio tequila. On another visit, I ordered chicken enchiladas. They were the size of a taquito - hardly any chicken. Don't get me wrong, I still love their flavors but oh do I miss the old days!
