Good Greek Restaurant in DC?

I will be in DC for a conference and a few of us wanted to try a greek restaurant for dinner. Any recommendations?

  1. Some DC Greeks drive to Baltimore's Greektown when they get that urge, it's not a top local DC specialty.

      Mourayo on 1732 Connecticut Ave (Dupont) is EXCELLENT!

        I forgot about Cava by Eastern Market-More trendy and good for sharing plates.

        Mourayo is more authentic Greek food (whole roasted fish, Greek yogurt w/ berries for dessert, etc.)

    2. Kellari Taverna has great seafood, though it's not cheap.

      1. The Parthenon near Chevy Chase Circle is a real solid choice.

          I second Parthenon. I think that all of their dishes are fairly authentic, tasty and decently priced. (My particular favorite is the lamb with orzo). Mykonos in Rockville is also pretty good. Kellari has good fish, but most other dishes fall flat - and it's expensive.

          1. Zaytinya http://www.zaytinya.com/

            Overall great enviornment and amazing dishes. Plus it's close to the metro station. Greek/Mediterannean

            1. second zaytynia. if staying in maryland there is Mykanos in Rockville which has great fish and greek food
