"Met a colleague for lunch and will very likely return. Everything about it was very pleasant, from the relaxed atmosphere to the very attentive service to the excellent rabbit in a mustard sauce. My guest thoroughly enjoyed the crab cakes with blood orange, and we both had glasses of wine that were lovely and fairly priced. My only reservation was, surprisingly, the cafe au lait. Then again, I'm used to lattes, so the thinness of the coffee may be something I am just not remembering. At any rate, I highly recommend Bistro Bis."

Under the direction of renowned chef José Andrés, Zaytinya offers an innovative mezze menu inspired by Turkish, Greek and Lebanese cuisines served up in a sleek and modern setting. Shared small plates, creative cocktails and unique Mediterranean wines make this spot one of DC’s top dining destinations.

"The creativity that goes into Jose Andres' menus is reason enough to go...then they execute perfectly. My guest had fried Brussels spouts with a creamy sauce that had him swooning, followed by a falafel burger and fries. I couldn't taste them due to a gluten issue, but the restaurant kindly offered a gluten-free menu. Stuffed grape leaves packed with flavor, which is rarely the case, and the best mussel dish I've ever had...perfect-sized mussels in a tomato broth with ouzo, herbs and a blanket of delicious crumbled feta. Even the ice tea was extraordinary, with a fruity but not sweet edge to it. Our server was pleasant, accommodating (gluten problem? then I'll bring out unasked a plate of thickly sliced cucumber) and friendly without being presumptuous. Highly recommend you visit. They offer a three course, $25 lunch deal as well."
