Formerly Napoleon, this space shed its French roots and opted instead for classic dishes found throughout Afghanistan. Run by the Popal family (the same group responsible for the beloved Bonaparte in Georgetown and the scene-y Malmaison), Lapis serves generations-old family recipes, including bolani (Afghan flat bread) and beef tikka (grilled beef with sumac). The vegetarians in your life will appreciate the deep vegetarian section on the menu—which also includes a few vegan options.
