If you find yourself in Adams Morgan, my buddy Chris's new cocktail/food place is opening this week.  The Green Zone will feature cocktails and food with a Middle Eastern focus, and it's open late, with food served almost until closing time.


The Green Zone


The former World Bank contractor, who is half Iraqi and well traveled in the region, assembled a menu of classic and original libations and bar snacks like falafel; mana'ish (flatbread) with a variety of toppings; chicken wings brightened by lemon and za'tar seasoning; and fries dusted in hot pepper, coriander, and garlic. Chef Gustavo Fuentes, who has a background in cooking Lebanese food, is leading the kitchen.



It's probably a good thing Significant Eater and I no longer do the commute to DC, as our apartment was literally right up the block from The Green Zone.
