Food Scene

Great place for BBQ, a nice microbrew or glass of wine, and other american comfort food. This is a newer Zingerman's venture, the original location in Kerrytown is well know for their sandwiches.

Mediterranean / middle eastern food. The interior is small, non-descript, and you order at the counter. You'll get metal utensils and plates, a killer gyro, or fatoush salad, and they have an impressive bakery cabinet full of multiple backlava and other sweet desserts.
