Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Inspired by her extensive travels with her husband, an NPR reporter, Rose Previte opened this neighborhood spot to bring global flavors to curious DC diners. The menu reflects the stamps on her passport, taking cues from international street foods. Since day one, the breakout star has been the khachapuri (a popular dish in the country of Georgia), essentially a canoe-shaped piece of bread filled with melted cheese, butter and egg. The space itself resembles a garden patio, where patrons are encouraged to linger over destination-driven cocktails like the Lost in Venice (Bluecoat gin, cynar, vermouth rouge and balsamic shrub).
