Lebanese Taverna is a D.C. favorite for fresh and flavorful Mediterranean cuisine. The Pentagon Row location is a neighborhood gathering spot, with outdoor seating available during warmer weather and a vibrant interior decorated with Arabic details.
Mezzas such as stuffed grape leaves, baba ghanoush, and kibbeh fritters are perfect starters to share with friends. The feast continues with flatbread falafel and shawarma sandwiches, or full-scale entrées like kabobs, sumac-brushed fillets, and vegetables stuffed with pilaf. Hot mint tea and baklava are a perfect end to a meal.
Lebanese Taverna holds endless hummus happy hours on weekday afternoons and serves scrumptious brunches on weekend mornings.
