Ottoman Taverna

This adorable Mediterranean restaurant in Mt. Vernon Triangle is a good place to bring a large group of folks for great small plates. Grab a seat in the sunshine near the floor-to-ceiling windows and order mimosas for the table—our favorites, because they’re light on the juice and heavy on the sparkling wine. The bottomless drinks here also include bloody marys and tea, which is a great touch for anyone not drinking alcohol. Get the patates köfte and tavuk köfte, a spicy chicken patty. They say there’s a two-hour time limit, but they usually don’t press you about it.
