is a dining concept from Chef José Andrés’ ThinkFoodGroup with shareable Eastern Mediterranean dishes. Named after the Turkish word for olive oil, the restaurant features an outdoor patio and light, airy interior — an ode to its Mediterranean-inspired small plates. The bar scene is vibrant, and offers regional wines as well as a creative cocktail list.
The Washington Post writes, "No matter your pleasure, this kitchen aims to meet it, with dozens of dishes that ferry you to Greece, Lebanon and Turkey without your having to leave Penn Quarter. Mezze are to the Middle East what tapas are to Spain and dim sum is to China: good things in small packages."
