    Jose Andres is DC's original celebrity chef. Before Top Chef, Jose had is knives on the pulse of the DC food scene. The Spanish chef is known for his tapas, but it's his Greek restaurant that keeps locals returning to eat and tourists scampering for a reservation.

    Great food, great atmosphere, great staff!!! Couldn't ask for more!! Well of course i can!!! More food at a lower price!!! :). (in my dreams).

    I love their small plates! They have such a large variety it's sure to satisfy everyone! I can hardly decide what I want to eat so with their small plates, I can order a little bit of everything!! That's exactly what we did!! The food was really good and has a lot of flavor. The presentation is really cute too!! I would definitely recommend this place!!

    On Saturday night, my husband and I went out to dinner with one of his work friends and a group of her friends. The food was fantastic! Since there were six of us, we were able to order lots of dishes. My favorites were the Baba Ghannouge (not usually something I like), the Turkish Style Pastirma, the Kibbeh, and the duck roll that was on the Specials menu. Really liked the pitcher of Pom Fili too - white wine, vodka, triple sec, and pomegranate juice. Yum!

    This restaurant offers a very fresh take on eastern Mediterranean cuisine. It is usually full, so make a reservation or be prepared to wait
