Food was a blend of Greek, Turkish and Lebonese with small plate servings. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was equally just as great. Recommend it to anyone.

We enjoyed a kebob plate with an eggplant side. The food was delicious and flavorful with an interesting take on what I think of as Mediterranean food. The puffed pita was amazing. It is very close to the Smithsonian Art and Portrait Gallery. Enjoy.

Do they have a dress code of any sort? Would like to eat here before a Wizards game, so we will likely be in t-shirts and jeans.
