Cafe Fili has only been open for a few months, but in that time this DC restaurant has developed a loyal following. The menu is focused on fresh Mediterranean and Lebanese cuisine with a bit of modern flair. For example, you can enjoy traditional za’atar spicing on a slice of avocado toast topped with an organic fried egg, or you can go for falafal and hummus served in a grain bowl with Israeli couscous, chopped salad, pickled turnips, and harissa. The dinner menu is set up to encourage sharing, and Yelp reviewers suggest ordering a variety of mezze, small bites, and kebabs for the whole table to enjoy. Prefer to eat in the comfort of your own home? No problem, as Yelpers note this place is a take-out spot. Pro tip: order and pay online so your food will be ready for grab-and-go service when you arrive to pick it up.
