'Too much is so good, you can't stop eating it. The tandoor-baked breads are not mere swabs for sauce but could be eaten, and enjoyed, on their own; the naan with cilantro and rock salt is terrific, as is the kulcha richly stuffed with minced lamb. Masala Art offers combinations you don't see often around here, but even its more familiar dishes can be revelations. Consider its samosas. They're flakier than a lot of the competition, and their filling of peas, potatoes and sweet raisins tastes fresher, too. A burst of cardamom in every bite helps. In the same vein, soft logs of minced lamb pulse with heat from jalapeno peppers, a shock offset with breezy mint. Pureed spinach is a vibrant green, flecked with corn and rich with garlic...' - WashingtonPost.com

Discover Tenleytown

Dining in this D.C. area neighborhood is as diverse as the metro area itself. From quick-service Portuguese chicken restaurants to exclusive rooftop lounges, Tenleytown has something for everyone. When visiting the area, the locals will recommend the half smoke. It's a smoked sausage traditionally made from half beef and half pork. The area has one of the highest concentrations of Ethiopian expats in the country. That means another must try is the authentic Ethiopian cuisine. Traditional Ethiopian food is served family style atop a sour pancake called injera that is used to wrap the food like a tortilla. If you prefer other food styles, there is a variety of American, Asian, European and Latin American venues that range from casual and family-friendly to high-end and romantic.
