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.
