Zaytinya specializes in Greek, Turkish and Lebanese food, with its concept of mezze (small plates, similar in size to tapas). Standout dishes include taramasalata and calamari. It's consistently included on DC's "top restaurant" lists, with the bonus that it's actually quite affordable. Located about a block away from the Verizon Center, Zaytinya is a great place to kick off your evening, or to wind down after a show or game. Happy hour specials are good here too.
