Stay on the first floor of this cozy Capitol Hill spot for a good selection of Mediterranean eats. Head to the lounge upstairs for happy hour (4:30-7:30pm on Mon-Fri), where you can score a spot on a comfy couch facing a fireplace. Pro tip: call first to make sure a private event won’t spoil your plans.
