Local 16 is a restaurant that makes you feel at home. As one enters the restaurant, you are greeted with a casual atmosphere, unpolished floors, hanging lamps and red walls. The restaurant has a bar on the second floor which serves drinks and martinis that are worth a try. Plenty of French bread is served and lamb couscous for the main course is a crowd pleaser. There is a lot of seafood on offer and for non-meat eaters there is always an assortment of salad entrees and vegetarian dishes. Moving on to desserts, the restaurant does perform above average, but the nine flavors of gelato cannot be missed.
Nestled among Georgetown's fancy restaurants, this small establishment serves up inexpensive Mediterranean dishes with individual portions large enough for two. Only two tables fit inside the tight space here. A small counter is available. On good-weather days, take food to benches along the nearby C&O Canal. Everything is made fresh, including the super thick Pita Bread at Moby Dick House Of Kabob. Gyros are packed with meat, onions, lettuce, tomato and feta cheese. Kabobs are usually served on a plate with rice. Juices and soft drinks are also available. There are additional locations in Bethesda, Crystal City, McLean, and Fairfax.
Egyptian cuisine is much like that of its Middle Eastern neighbors, but give Pasha Cafe a try, and notice the subtle differences. The focus here is on appetizers. They range from the familiar hummus, which comes plain or infused with a variety of fresh herbs to the more exotic, such as the kosa bel zabadi, a creamy zucchini dip. Favorite entrees include tender kebabs of lamb, chicken or fish and moulkia, a traditional Egyptian dish of greens mixed with lamb or chicken.
The dining room in this small storefront is beautifully decorated with Middle Eastern tapestries and carpets. You can make a meal of the appetizers alone in Layalina. Choose from a large selection of small dishes including the familiar Falafel, Baba Ghanouj and Hummus. Kibbeh - ground meat and bulgar - is outstanding, as is the exotically spiced Soujok - Lebanese sausage. For a typical Lebanese dish, try the Fatteh— a delightful mixture of toasted pita, almonds, yogurt, eggplant and beef. To satisfy your sweet tooth, sample some of the delectable phyllo pastries with honey and nuts.
