We were in Washington D.C.. We stayed in Alexandria. We had lunch at Vaso's. A clean place and we sat adjacent to the window. Pleasant server who was knowledgable about the offerings. It was just perfect for us. Reasonably priced in good place.

I can only hope the Italian dishes are better than the Greek. Canned dolmades and bland hummus. Happily, the avgolemono was excellent. Waitstaff seemed inconvenienced by the customers.

Street parking, pay until 9:00pm. Some lots nearby and if you are taking metro or staying in Old Town, you can take the free trolley that runs up and down King Street.
