3155 Mount Pleasant St NW, Washington

Mola is a low-key neighborhood restaurant where you’ll feel like you’re eating at a friend’s place, which actually makes sense since it’s located in a refurbished townhouse. This Spanish spot in Mount Pleasant only seats 45 at a time, with space for 10 at the bar. It’s perfect for a date, or any other type of in-depth conversation over tapas. The menu is broken into four sections - snacks, vegetables, seafood, and meat - and while most of the plates are small to medium sized, they do serve a few larger dishes that you can share, like the honey BBQ quail and the roast pork shoulder with paella. Also, make sure to get the fried goat cheese with honey, which tastes exactly as good as it sounds.
