Lebanese Taverna

2641 Connecticut Ave. N.W.
Washington, DC, 20008, United States
TEL: (202) 265-8681

This Woodley Park Lebanese restaurant was opened by Lebanese immigrants Tanios and Marie Abi-Najm in 1990, after the success of their first restaurant in Arlington, Virginia. The restaurant’s interior evokes the Abi-Najm family’s homeland, with its domed ceiling and carved wooden accents; Lebanese music plays quietly in the background. The menu has a selection of small starter dishes, such as the shawarma, a mix of rotisserie lamb and beef served with tahini sauce, as well as main dishes, including the warakinab mehshi—grape leaves stuffed with lamb and beef. Plenty of vegetarian options are available as well.

Insider Tip:

In the warmer months, ask for a seat on the patio, which faces bustling Connecticut Avenue.
