Zaytinya offers an innovative mezze menu inspired by Turkish, Greek and Lebanese cuisines, under the direction of renowned chef José Andrés, 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.

"Always fun to be at Zaytinya - slammed as usual with more and more tourists hoping to be seated without a reservation... Enjoyed some of our favorites, the horta salata and Brussels sprouts remain at the top of our list, and also tried the Turkish chicken salad on endive leaves. It was delicious and beautifully presented, of course. Between our frequent visits to Zaytinya and Jaleo, we continue to be impressed with Jose Andres. It isn't just that we've never had a bad meal at one of his restaurants, we don't recall one that was even mediocre. We are also pleased to have the option to purchase his olive oil and sherry vinegar now."

"Excellent meal with perfect service provided by Jorge T. We force ourselves to try at least one or two new things each time we enjoy a meal at Jaleo; just too easy to order the same wonderful dishes over and over again. The combination of roasted eggplant, peppers and onions with a splash of sherry vinegar was a very good choice, and we don't think it is possible to top the salad of Brussels sprouts, apricots and tiny pieces of pork. The roasted shrimp with garlic was truly outstanding - nothing could have been cooked more perfectly."

"From the never-ending line of people coming through the door, it is obvious that the Dim Sum Brunch at The Source is still the huge draw it deserves to be - always an amazing meal. And as usual, in addition to a number of favorites, new things pop up on the menu; this time we tried three of them and each one was just perfect. The chicken wontons were new to us and we continue to be amazed that Chef finds so many ways to layer flavors and also include just a hint of heat as an undertone. Each small plate was just beautiful and absolutely delicious!"

"Again, a meal at Zaytinya that lived up to all of our expectations. We have so many favorites that sometimes it is difficult to choose just four or five, but each of them was beautifully prepared, as always. Just the Brussels sprouts alone are noteworthy, but the tastes, flavors and textures of dishes like the Horta Salata, those wonderful red lentil cakes laced with cumin, and the crispy fried squid are all worth getting a reservation and enjoying an hour or more over lunch."

"Lovely President's Day lunch at a table by the window. We always love the salad at The Oval Room and as usual, the entrees were interesting and delicious. For perfectly cooked fish, this is a favorite location. And the shared dessert was delightful and very clever. How does anyone make such tiny cookies to accent a beautiful plate? Terrific service!"

"The food presentation at Jaleo is always spectacular and this meal was no exception. So many delicious dishes and this time we managed to try a few new things; it is so easy to order something you enjoy over and over again. Jorge T's service was excellent yet again - we look forward to sitting in his space on our next visit."

"Always such interesting flavors in each of the dishes at Jaleo. Still loving the "liquid" olives and the Brussels sprout salad is truly delicious. The combination of mushrooms used in the rice dish put it over the top. While we don't frequently order dessert, the icy grapefruit was beyond any expectations - that would be a winner any day!"

Ardeo+Bardeo, located in the historic district of Cleveland Park -- four miles from the White House -- is a neighborhood favorite serving modern American cuisine. The restaurant underwent a major renovation in November 2010 to enhance the modern bistro and wine bar, uniting the two restaurants with a 24-seat island bar. Executive Chef Nate Garyantes has crafted a menu which features cured meats, soups and salads, savory snacks, seasonal vegetables dishes and brick oven baked flatbreads. Ardeo+Bardeo has become a virtual “Who’s Who” of Washington. Those who frequent include Madeleine Albright, Jim Lehrer, Alan Greenspan and the former first family, the Clintons.

"Love brunch at Ardeo, especially when items like a frisee salad topped with a perfect poached egg and the most incredibly crispy chicken livers ever make an appearance. Equally delicious was Ardeo's spin on pork and grits topped with sunny side up eggs. The pork literally melts in your mouth - we hope both of these dishes appear frequently on the brunch menu."
