Lebanese Taverna Review

A recent redesign added bar seats while giving the once old-school Taverna a more modern feel that doesn't sacrifice its warm elegance. Lamb, beef, chicken, and seafood are either grilled on skewers, slow roasted, or smothered with a garlicky yogurt sauce. A group can make a meal of the meze platters—a mix of appetizers and sliced shawarma (spit-roasted lamb)—especially during the 4–7 pm happy hour, when all are $5 or under and hummus is "endless." The original location is in suburban Virginia, but this younger sibling has become better known.

    Perhaps the most overrated Middle East restaurant in DC metro area (but it's true, the meze platter is ample), accompanied by sometimes surly and often unresponsive waiters.
    Far better bet: Bacchus, in nearby downtown Bethesda, MD. Or try other nearby Adams-Morgan eateries (there's one just across the Calvert St. bridge, within walking distance).
