DC's Tash
Posted by:  Kara Deniz

Tash, a new Persian-Middle Eastern restaurant on Barracks Row, recently opened to rave reviews. It's easy to see why everyone loves Tash and to understand the long lines that formed at 8 p.m. on a recent Friday night. The chef certainly does not suffer from the learning curve that comes with many new restaurants. The menu boasts a variety of unique meat and vegetable dishes and dressed up appetizers at a very reasonable price. Happy hour is excellent, with half off virtually everything, including specialty cocktails, until 6:30 p.m.. As for dinner, the pita bread was thin, hot, and crispy, perfect for dipping in a smooth and smoky baba ganoush, adorned with pomegranate seeds. The saffron lemon chicken was flavorful, cooked to perfection, with a yogurt sauce and tabouleh on the side -- a meal that is filling, but leaves you wanting more only because it's just that good. There's always time for a return visit, but make sure to call in for reservations. This place is, without a doubt, catching on quick.
