I eneded up having lunch here because (a) I'd just visited my ophthamologist; (b) whose office is in this same building, and: (c) my eyes were so dilated it was really not smart to try and drive back home to Northern Virginia.Besides, it was lunchtime.
I entered thru a back door so passed thru the bar area to get to the dining room. The bar looked like a "Cheers" sort of place which would be a great place to go in the evening. I immediately liked the place.
I was seated quickly in the dining room, which was almost empty (it was 1:00 PM) but more folks came in during my lunch. The waiter was quick to bring water and iced tea while I studied the menu, which had a good variety of selections ranging from standard Greek fare to burgers and even a fried oyster sandwich. I opted for the Gyro Plate...GOOD CHOICE! The gyro was served open-faced so there was no struggle to wrap my mouth around an overstuffed Greek sandwich. The lamb was delicious (not over-cooked and dry like so often found); the tzatziki was a large portion and delicious; the pita was warm and excellent; the salad went beyond the norm (ie iceberg lettuce) and included tomato, cucumber, onion, and a couple of leafy varieties as well as a good dressing; and the fries were just right. The waiter ensured water and iced tea were refilled.
This place is a real deal. Lunch was less than $17 including tip. A real deal for the DC Metro area.
I hope to go back in the evening and try that bar and some of the Greek entrees for dinner.
