10 "Mediterranean" Restaurants in Washington DC.
Wear elastic-waisted pants when you go to Tail Up Goat in Adams Morgan, and make sure to get involved with the pastas and lamb ribs.
Another Jose Andres spot with solid tapas. Head to Zaytinya for a power lunch that doesn’t feel like a power lunch.
In the middle of Clarendon, Cava Mezze is a solid spot for a Mediterranean group dinner or brunch.
For a fun group dinner in Arlington, go to Ambar and do the unlimited small plates option for $35.
You know the drill at Cava: build your own Mediterranean bowl/wrap. Pretty much whatever you make will turn out great.
Not sure what you want? Compass Rose is the move. The Logan Circle spot serves small plates inspired by street food from all over the world.
Anxo is a “cider” garden/bar/restaurant in Shaw. Come on a date and split a few small plates, or for a group hang when it’s nice out.
Nido is a cute, bright neighborhood spot in Brookland. If you’re in the area, the Mediterranean small plates make for a good weeknight dinner.
Agora is often overlooked for trendier spots in Dupont, but the Mediterranean food here is pretty good. Use it for a last-minute meal.
