Voted the best Mediterranean eatery inside the Beltway for three years running, this Penn Quarter restaurant and bar is a downtown destination for locals on Friday nights. Celebrity chef Jose Andres offers a mezze menu of small plates favoring Turkish, Greek, and Lebanese cuisine elements in a convivial space with big picture windows and high ceilings. The restaurant's extensive selection of cocktails and Mediterranean wines attract an upscale, youngish crowd, particularly on the weekends.
