This place is great - All small plates for sharing. The Turkish dishes were a standout - and great wines as well - from places like Bulgaria etc. I really enjoyed the food and atmosphere - a great place to dine in DC.

We were welcomed warmly and seated promptly at Zaytinya. Service was excellent and everything we ordered was wonderful. The cocktail menu is interesting and the Turkish Storm was a huge hit, made with homemade ginger beer. The hommus, with spiced ground lamb and pine nuts...More
