Doner Bistro Restaurant Review

: Offering a German version of Middle Eastern kebabs served outdoors on rickety tables in good weather (there’s also indoor seating), Döner Bistro proposes a menu that is as much about Turkish-style gyros as it is about German beer, bratwurst and falafel, plus salads and potatoes --- with an emphasis on healthful eats. So you think you have it all figured out? Well, the only way to appreciate the overstuffed breads with flavorful toppings, such as sliced onions, and the special dressing is to find a location near you. Desserts include packages of candy or scoops of ice cream. Also located at 1654 Columbia Rd., Adams Morgan, Washington, DC, 202-462-8355; and 50 Carroll Creek Way, Ste. 110, Frederick, Md., 301-624-2424.
