THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mie N Yu Restaurant Review

: This hip G’town destination is a restaurant of many parts---that is, many separate dining areas decked out to represent different ethnic experiences. We ended up in the Turkish Tent, which is a room swathed in wall hangings and carpeted with colorful area rugs; for seating, patrons can lounge on pillow-laden banquettes or sit upright on small stools. Either way, they can lunch or dine leisurely with a menu that represents cuisines from the ancient Silk Road countries, with dishes infused with modern American touches. At lunchtime, there may be Chinese pot stickers filled with a creamy crab mixture, a Moroccan meatballs sandwich paired with a soba noodle salad---culture clash!---and a rather meager square of cheesecake, a special for the day. Unusually, the kitchen serves a robust French-press coffee, an honest cup of joe for the day.
