Bistros are remarkable in that they somehow manage to be both fancy and casual at the same time, much like a necktie with Taz on it. Feel gussied up without too much fuss with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of American cuisine and drinks at Ulah Bistro.

The chefs at Ulah have crafted a diverse menu of modern American and continental dishes for brunch, lunch, and dinner. A starter of ahi tuna tartare quiets hunger pangs with asian seaweed salad, orange-sesame dressing, and wasabi aioli ($12), as does an order of smoked-gouda mac 'n' cheese served with homemade cornbread and optional bacon confetti ($8–$10). Like Santa Claus and dancing chimney sweeps, pizza pies emerge from brick fire vessels to delight diners ($10+), and a slew of hearty sandwiches fill mouths with delectable layers of fresh veggies, meat, and cheese ($9–$14). Dinner entrees make an appearance starting at 5 p.m. and include louisiana jambalaya ($17), and omnivore-friendly vegetarian orzo brimming with vegetables and sprinkled with shaved parmesan ($16). Patrons can choose from the wine list to pair fare with vino from a variety of regions, although the bistro's dreamy desserts don’t stick around long enough to share their origin stories. Avid frolfers can celebrate their passion for combination concepts by refueling with selections from Ulah's weekend [brunch menu)[http://www.ulahbistro.com/pdf/brunch.pdf), served from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Ulah's airy and open dining room creates an inviting environment suitable for afternoon lunch dates, and the sofa-clad lounge and polished granite bar can hold gaggles of nocturnal noshers.

Ulah Bistro

Owner Med Lahlou took the U from U Street and combined it with the beginning of his last name and a restaurant he owned named Tunnicliff's to form Ulah Bistro, according to the Washington Post. Ulah's chefs, who have more than 20 years of culinary experience, handcraft American cuisine, pleasing palates from coast to coast to the pizza-laden streets of New York and back.

Fresh seafood steers the menu ocean-side, with fresh shrimp, scallops, and calamari enlivening linguine, and seared tuna and Atlantic salmon sweeping up the hearty new york strip steak in their currents. In the eatery’s brick oven, golden-brown pizzas sport combinations such as Ulah’s signature medley of crab, tomatoes, olive oil, and parmesan. Alternatively, a make-your-own option lets pizza-lovers personalize pies with vine-ripened tomatoes to reflect their rosy cheeks, or sun-dried tomatoes to reflect their third-degree sunburns.

Customer Reviews

The food was delicious!
Linda C. · February 8, 2015
The entrées were delicious and service great. If you go in the winter, be prepared to eat with your coat on. The Draft from the door is unavoidable.
