Consider Zaytinya for Brunch

Zaytinya DC Tanvii.com

I have written about Zaytinya on the blog before and this is a rare instance where I am writing about a restaurant again. Zaytinya is a fabulous Greek-meets-Lebanese food restaurant, served as small plate style - I'd recommend order three per person and share. My opinion remains the same as before but I did want to suggest that you should consider it for brunch as well based on our Sunday Brunch. There is a special Brunch menu, although the entire regular menu is available as well.

You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. While husband enjoyed his meat Turkish Style Pastirma the best was the Ashta, Lebanese style French Toast - sponge-like texture, with orange flavored honey served with seasonal fruits and mint. We tried a few things on the menu and each dish had great flavor and was cooked perfectly. Not to forget the freshly baked lebanese-style pita. The warm pita that was continuously brought to the table was free, but I would have paid for it. It is absolutely delicious and paired well with the high-quality olive oil that was provided for dipping. I also tried it with the hommus, tzatziki and the baba ghannouge, both of which were excellent representations of the classics. Yum-tum-yum! Last but not the least the desserts are exceptional too. Turkish delight has to be my favorite of them all. 

It is in a great location right next to the National Portrait Gallery and also has great interior decor with natural lighting. Very attentive waitstaff, who never let your coffee cup get empty. And as always a nice layout and acceptable noise level. If you have not yet checked out this Jose Andres restaurant, then you must!

  3. Everything here looks so fresh and delicious, and I imagine that french toast must have the most luscious custard texture inside.
