Zaytinya, finally

One of Jose Andres’ restaurant – Mediterranean, sits across street from museum – National Portrait Gallery. Airy and neat, the setting is lovely and inviting. We have lunch there on a sunny day. The hall is filled with light and some are reflected off the few hug bottles of olive oil that they they sprinkled around as decor.

We were seated by the working station, which is a bit uncomfortable.

The waiting staff is great. They all seem to know what to do. They also know the ingredients of the dish, one even told me how to make the garlic toum. But warned me how and when to add ice is crucial. They are well trained and the restaurant is well run.
