We were in Rockville on Saturday for a birthday party at Chuck E Cheese and decided to meet up with some cousins in DC for a late lunch. We headed to Dupont Circle to check out the Lebanese hot spot: Kababji. We didn't know until we showed up, but the restaurant had a lounge-type atmosphere. Our party was 4 adults and 4 kids under 10, so we offered to sit outside.
Just as we were seated, the rain came down and moved our party into the dining area. The manager was super nice, but told us that the area was set up for a large private party later in the evening - and as long as we could be out in 1.5 hours, we could eat inside (wasn't that nice of him?). I was kinda put off because the restaurant was basically empty... but we promised not to stay long and we sat down and ordered.
The food was really really good. So good that I forgot to take pics of the appetizers until they were almost gone. They had all of my favorite plates - and I could have probably eaten just appetizers as my main course. Their selection of kabobs was fresh and plentiful. All are displayed in a case (imagine: Wegmans) around the fire right when you walk in. After dinner, the manager brought us complimentary baklava for the whole table. Maybe it was a peace offering for insisting we leave early, but we eagerly accepted it.
I would definitely go back for date night... without kids :)
