Raise a Glass to Literary Greats at the Library Tavern

With cocktails bearing monikers like The Great Gatsby and vintage books lining the walls, it's easy to see why the Library Tavern is so-named. When the eatery opened its doors a month ago, it brought a bit of literary magic to DC—along with an inventive mix of American and Persian cuisine.

Enjoy your Great Gatsby or David Copperfield cocktail alongside starters such as tomato bruschetta on a crispy baguette, Persian-style chicken-potato salad (salad Oliveh), or house-made falafel. Save some room for a koobideh kabob, a Library burger, or an entree such as the panko-crusted chicken breast or baked salmon. And if you decide to check out Library Tavern on the weekend, come by early enough to enjoy its brunch fare. The tavern might just become your new go-to spot for happy hour, dinner, and brunch.
