Zaytinya - Recommended Dishes?

kathryn | Aug 2, 2011 06:14 PM

Returning to Zaytinya on a very short trip to DC, for a pre-museum lunch, before shipping out to Virginia for a wedding.

On the first visit to Zaytinya, we greatly enjoyed:
- Falafel: traditional chickpea fritters, tahini sauce
- Garides Me Anitho: shrimp, dill, shallots, mustard, lemon juice
- Bantijan Bil Laban: crispy eggplant, roasted garlic-yogurt sauce
- Arayes: grilled ground lamb and tahini stuffed pita, garlic yogurt

The only thing we didn't like was the Adana Kebab: skewered ground lamb, house made harissa,
grilled tomatoes, sumac, onions.

Any dishes we we shouldn't miss this time around? Spanakopita? Aglaia Kremezi style Crab Cakes? Crispy Brussel Afelia? Octopus Santorini?
