At Fairouz Cafe, waiters ameliorate appetites with a menu of classic Middle Eastern dishes. Hummus bel-shawarma ($9.95) jump-starts eating engines with a serving of hummus topped by slices of beef and lamb, created by cracking a meat piñata over the plate. The chicken kebab platter unites marinated, boneless chicken cubes with rice ($11.95), and the falafel sandwich corrals fried chickpea patties into bellies ($5.95). Combo appetizer plates such as the yogurt salad with diced cucumbers ($3.50) or the shakshouky, an eggplant salad with diced tomatoes and pomegranate extract ($5.95), juxtapose simple ingredients to accentuate their flavor, much like PB&J sandwiches or barbershop quartets with one rapper. Escort meals to hunger-vanquishing glory on a cascade of nonalcoholic beverages such as juices and smoothies ($4.50) or a toasty pot of Turkish coffee ($3.95). During meals, diners can enjoy the smoky flavors of a hookah (not included with this Groupon), soak in live or DJed music, observe the sensual stylings of a belly dancer, or keep up with sports on wall-mounted televisions.

Mouthwatering scents from traditional tagines trickle through the horseshoe arches of this Moroccan eatery, offering olfactory hints at dishes served up à la carte and family style. Make a bold beginning with a bastilla appetizer, a bastion of Moroccan fare filling thin phyllo dough with chicken or vegetables ($14.99, $24.99 for medium). Next, sink teeth into entrees of vegetarian and meaty varieties, such as the lamb tagine with raisins and almonds in a sweet sauce ($15.99) or vegetable-studded couscous ($12.99). Families, friends, or barbershop quartets can feed on Fez's family-style feasts, which include soup or salad, a bastilla, a tagine or couscous, dessert, and Moroccan mint tea (starting at $46.99). The bistro's bar is open late on weekends to accommodate nocturnal noshers.

Saphira, the matriarch and founder of Saffron Dance, didn’t even exist 20 years ago, much like “I survived Y2K” bumper stickers. Saphira was known as Rachael Galoob-Ortega, a lawyer who practiced in DC and Florida for a decade. But her high-power career and hefty paycheck couldn’t extinguish her passion for dance. And so she became Saphira, an international belly-dance artist and instructor with numerous accolades, including being featured in American Belly Dancer, a documentary about belly dance in the United States.

Saphira opened Saffron Dance six years ago, and along with 18 fellow instructors, channels her years of expertise into dance courses that get progressively more challenging from week to week. Welcoming all levels, her classes teach both Egyptian-inspired belly dance and community-focused tribal belly dance. Regardless of the class type, Saphira and her teachers encourage pupils to express their unique voices through dance, all while keeping proper alignment, mastering precision, and having fun.

Inside The Salsa Room, Latin artists such as Marc Anthony, Oscar D'León, and Gilberto Santa Rosa croon to diners pouring over a menu of steak and seafood dishes. Drawing on influences from Latin America and the Caribbean, the club's chefs construct a menu bursting with spicy, flavorful ingredients like a piñata full of jalapeños. Chorizo adds a splash of flavor to breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes, creating taste-bud-tempting fare such as the house specialty guiso de garbanzos con chorizo—a blend of chickpeas, beef, and spanish chorizo in a tomato-based creole sauce. On Wednesday at 8 p.m., salsa and bachata dance instructors take to the floor to lead patrons in the rhythmic steps and sly glances that compose Latin choreography.

Behind the scenes at Zen Bistro & Wine Bar, the kitchen staff prepares a range of Pan-Asian specialties—including sushi rolls, entrees, and Asian-style tapas—to serve alongside their carefully selected wines or cocktails. Meanwhile, patrons can soak in the serene décor of the interior or the newly remodeled outdoor patio, gazing at stone fountains and lush plants while resting after a long day of re-painting neighborhood taxi cabs into police cars.

Made to be shared with tablemates, the tapas dishes include specialties like fried-chicken curry puffs, crunchy calamari with mixed greens, or crispy wonton spring rolls. Dinner specialties include five-spice roasted duck, braised lemongrass lamb chops, and hawaiian chicken with pineapple and cashew nuts.
