My daughter and I had dinner at Zaytinya in Nov. 2016. I had wanted to try one of Jose Andres restaurants. We weren't disappointed. The restaurant is big! Seats over 200 people. And it was packed the night we were there which was a Saturday. We had reservations, but had to wait a bit to be seated. Once we were... More

Always our favorite. Love the baba ghannouge and tzatziki to start.

Next up, garides me anitho (shrimp with dill), shish taouk (grilled chicken skewers), kibbeh (beef and bulgar wheat fritters), and adana kebab (lamb grilled with tomatoes).... More

We also thoroughly enjoyed the golden-roasted seasonal mushrooms, dotted with the sweetness... More

Absolutely fantastic. We debated the chef experience tasting menu or just ordering a bunch. Ended up ordering a bunch and everything was amazing. Some of the highlights were the Brussels sprouts, the hummus w ground lamb, lamb shank, octopus santorini and the braised goat moussaka. I really don't think you can make a bad choice here no matter what you... More

Excellent modern, traditional with a unique twist, really tasty and flavorful. Pricey- small plates to be eaten tapas style. 25$ lunch special with 3 courses ans dessert is a good deal
