Restaurant ReviewsBistro Med
3288 M Street, NW, Washington, DC

Charged with the task of finding somewhere to eat in DC before a show, I settled on Bistro Med in Georgetown. This despite a web site that hadn't been updated in months and a confidence-shaking phone call that left me doubting the place was still in business.

When we arrived, the mostly empty tables didn't boost our confidence, but the place was clean and nicely decorated, so what the hell? We started off with an order of Hummus, since any Greek restaurant can be measured on the strength of this dish. We were immediately and easily swayed by the spicy, creamy concoction and the warm pita that accompanied it. We settled on personal Turkish "pizzas" – footlong pita topped with mozzeralla, provolone, feta cheese and tomatoes baked in a stone floor pizza oven. Mine was topped with diced, tasty shrimp while Chris went with the standard cheese. Both were hot and flavorful, if a bit oily.

Don't be fooled or turned off by Bistro Med's quiet nature and ambiance.
