Agora Restaurant Review

: This thriving spot in the Dupont Circle area offers a diverse menu that blends both Greek and Turkish fare. Most of the dishes you won’t find elsewhere, and that makes Agora a draw for the culinary adventurer. For one, be sure to include in your order such dishes as the grilled octopus, zesty with cilantro; the pan-seared sheep’s milk cheese with fig jam; and the grilled lamb chops or grilled quail. For the final touch to a meal, try the wood-fired pide (or pita) topped with spicy Turkish sausage. Both lunch and brunch menus are shorter than the evening repast, but for the latter you can find both Turkish and American treats, including french toast and a feta cheese omelet. Renowned for its list of anise-flavored Turkish raki, Agora may just fill your need for exotic eats in midtown DC.
