The best stiffed grape leaves that I've ever had and the second best key lime pie. Every thing we had was really good.

Excellent meal, service and nice, quiet ambiance. Every bit as good as the meal you'd get at a DC restaurant that'd cost three times more. Will return!

This was a real gem that we did not know about before finding it through groupon. The service was fabulous and the food even better. We will definitely be going there again.

From Our Editors

Cooking began as a hobby for Reda Asaad. Along with his wife Nadia, the local Arabic teacher would often host barbecues for friends and students, feeding the masses with dishes such as his signature grilled chicken with a marinade of aromatic Middle Eastern spices. After friends and students alike continued to insist that the couple open a restaurant and share their recipes with the public, the Asaads founded Bistro LaZeez. They never lost sight of their cuisine’s backyard barbecue roots, though. As Reda explained to The Washington Post, “what I cook in the restaurant is what I cook at home.”

Garlic, coriander, cilantro, turmeric, and cardamom appear throughout the menu and reinforce its Mediterranean and Middle Eastern origins. In addition to roasting kebabs, all-natural lamb and tender beef, Reda still prepares his signature antibiotic- and hormone-free chicken dishes, which helped Bistro LaZeez earn a nod on Bethesda Magazine's 2013 list of 25 Favorite Ethnic Restaurants as well as win the magazine's 2010 award for Best Grilled Chicken. The selection also includes vegetarian items—such as traditional falafel and hummus—as well as a number of gluten-free dishes.

Although the menu is steeped in classic, homespun tradition, Bistro LaZeez’s dining room appears to embrace a more modern ambiance, complete with clean lines and a simple color scheme. Dark walnut chairs and olive green banquettes flank the room’s tables, which complement the neutral earth tones of the walls. Three small crystal chandeliers hang above the booth-lined wall, casting their light across the white marble bar and the sandy tiled floors.
