D.C.: Anatolia

Located in the Capitol Hill area at 633 Pennsylvania Ave SE, this Turkish restaurant is one in a string of nearby ethnic eateries. The food was appealing, though the extremely tender lamb shank doesn't strike one as middle eastern (it's rather almost Irish). But the kebab was authentic enough. And the meal was entirely saved by the tasty baklava. Overall, though, I'd have to say that I'm spoiled by The Istanbul Cafe in New Haven where the hospitality and the amazing food make one feel as if they were being welcomed into a traditional home for dinner.
