Zaytinya. Washington. District of Columbia. 1.12.2015 & 1.17.2015.

Right across the street from the National Portrait Gallery & Smithsonian American Art Museum is this fantastic restaurant. It was so good that I ate there twice, much like my repeated visits to the galleries. They serve Mediterranean small plates.
