"The tastiest authentic BBQ in the NYC area, efficient friendly service from the hostess to the servers. Do not miss the crispy hush puppies, Memphis style pork spare ribs, Texas beef brisket, banana pudding and 21st Amendment watermelon beer, you won't be disappointed. We highly recommend Virgil's and will be back soon."

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.

"My husband and I celebrated our Anniversary at Zaytinya, we had a scrumptious dinner and memorable dining experience thanks to Mr. Zaslavsky and Team. The servers are very knowledgeable and professional, very well trained staff - it shows! We highly recommend starting with the "Spice Road Gin & Tonic", the real licorice stick was a welcoming treat. Order some labneh to go with the delicious fresh baked pita. We really enjoyed the Turkish Style Pastirma rolled with radish, apricot, and arugula, the Mercimek Koftesi, Loukaniko, Lamb Bahar and the Adana Kabob. We can't wait to dine at Zaytinya again!"

From the team behind Ripple in Cleveland Park, we are thrilled to announce the launch of Roofers Union, a new restaurant now open in Adams Morgan. The menu at Roofers Union will showcase chef Marjorie Meek-Bradley's take on casual tavern fair inside a neighborhood restaurant and bar.<br /><br />The bar program will focus on craft beers and cocktails as well as 10 to 12 wines by the glass on a moderately priced list from around the world.<br /><br />A cozy and relaxed first level houses a cocktail-centric bar with 24 seats, while the main level features floor-to-ceiling windows that fill the restaurant with natural light and of Adams Morgan’s bustling 18th Street. The vibrant dining room will offer full service with a range of seating options including a revamped 20- seat bar, tables for large groups, and banquets.<br />

"My husband and I dined at Roofers Union because we are a fan of ripple, but we were somewhat disappointed in the food and service at Roofers Union. The brisket was very dry, the chicken sausage was overly salty, and the pineapple upside down cake was too pedestrian, it needed something more. The highlights were the cipollini onion rings with BBQ sauce, the homemade potato chips, the cauliflower with mint and pine nuts, and the "Spring Fever" cocktail. The service was just ok, no happy faces, no personality, seemed like it was a task for them to take orders. I would have expected more."
