Next to a 7-Eleven in Capitol Hill, you’ll find this tiny Middle Eastern spot with colorful bar stools and decorative paintings of chickpeas on the walls. The menu is full of fresh homemade hummus in different varieties, like one topped with tahini and crispy falafel balls, or a half-mashed version with lemon and garlic. Then there’s a good cucumber salad and some standout “cheeps” (delicious french fries with a tahini dip). Try Aviv for a low-key weeknight dinner.
