  • Lillies Restaurant and Bar
    Though a dessert display case, rustic wooden tables, and exposed-brick walls ground this eatery's casual neighborhood appeal, the food at Lillies remains decidedly upscale but still approachable. A team of chefs draw from Italian culinary traditions when crafting Mediterranean seasonal dishes?including gourmet pastas, roasted lamb, and gourmet eggs benedict?trumped up with demi-glaces and aiolis. Bartenders concoct cocktails and martinis in between pouring international beers and wine to complement the cuisine's distinctive flavors. During warmer months, guests can enjoy their meals on the patio, where Mediterranean touches, including indigo mosaic-tiled tables and olive-oil waterfalls, reflect the cuisine?s heritage.

  • Open City
    Open City hosts a broad cross-section of patrons, from local hipsters and neighborhood families to conventioneers staying at the nearby Marriott and Omni hotels. Freelancers and students leisurely sip coffee and use the free Wi-Fi, and while the café is open all day long, the most popular meals here are breakfast and brunch. Look for omelets, scrambles, buttermilk or multi-grain pancakes, french toast, mimosas and everything else you might crave before noon, all served with a seriously relaxed vibe. While breakfast is served all day, those dining later might want to indulge in one of the homemade salads or sandwiches, or fawn over a cup of coffee – served with animal crackers on the side. No matter what your order, the big, yawning space will make you feel right at home, thanks to an abundance of natural light. Or, soak it all in from their sidewalk patio space.

  • Lebanese Taverna
    In the dead of night in 1976, the Abi-Najm family boarded a cargo ship bringing only what they could carry; an escape from Civil War in Lebanon called for a quick getaway. They traveled across the ocean to safety in Arlington, Virginia, where they were able to open a small cafe in 1979. To save money, they changed the eatery?s name from ?Athenian Taverna? to ?Lebanese Taverna? so that they only had to update one word on the eatery?s marquee. From these modest beginnings grew a series of eateries that today comprises of six cafes and four quick-service caf?s, all still operated by the Abi-Najm clan. One look at the menu explains the success: chicken shawarma, spicy hummus, lamb tartare?all Lebanese staples that helped the restaurant earn a spot on Northern Virginia magazine's list of 25 Iconic Eats. There's even kibbeh, or stuffed meatballs, which blend ground beef, lamb, almonds, and pine nuts into fried spheres suitable for felling miniature bowling pins on top of the table before entrees arrive. The decor is as striking as the cuisine; inside the Bethesda location, light filters through the colored glass lanterns that decorate the dining room.
