Taking inspiration from Turkish, Greek and Lebanese cuisines, Zaytinya offers an innovative mezze menu. With a focus on small plates, guests are encouraged to share the authentic and innovative fare. Complementing the meal are creative cocktails as well as unique Mediterranean wines, hand-selected by Wine Director and Master Sommelier, Andy Meyers. Zaytinya first opened in Washington, D.C. in 2002 and since then has earned many awards and accolades, most recently receiving a Bib Gourmand distinction from the first DC Michelin Guide, two three-star reviews from the Washington Post, and the #9 spot on Washingtonian's '100 Very Best Restaurant 2016' list.
