At first glance, Ciudad seems out of place. It’s in an under-trafficked part of Georgetown, the charcoal grill is right outside the front door, and there’s a mural that looks like an eerie Lewis Carroll version of one in a pediatrician’s office. But despite the creepy colorful paintings of hippos cut in half and the grim reaper, Ciudad is a nice place to spend a few hours with a group. The Mediterranean/Middle Eastern menu is heavy on grilled meats, and you can order them by weight, which is ideal for sharing. Get some sauces like smoky yogurt and black garlic aioli to go with them, and don’t forget the hummus and flatbread (our favorite thing here) and the snap peas with tomato sambal and burnt honey. A round of mezcal lemonades for the group is also a good idea.
