Restaurants near Verizon Center, Best Value: Don't know what to grab for lunch? Why not head to this Jose Andres gem and get the mezze lunch special boasting four courses for $25. Served in small plate style, you'll find delicious dishes throughout the entire Greek, Turkish and Lebanese focused menu. Named for the Turkish word for olive oil, patrons will discover a bevy of spreads, soups, salads, flatbreads and mezze options to devour. Reservations for lunch and dinner are recommended. If it's a nice day, grab a table outside on their patio which seats 70 guests. METRO: Gallery Place/Chinatown
Restaurants with Gluten-Free Menus: With its stark white walls, high ceilings and dramatic glass facade, Zaytinya has emerged as a popular after-work gathering place. Hot and cold mezze ("middle-of-the-day" meals) enrich the dining scene with contemporary Eastern Mediterranean fare (much of it gluten free), including lamb with hummus and spiced sirloin with dry fruit compote. For more substantial appetites, the kebab platter or braised lamb shank with eggplant does nicely. An added perk: The wine list focuses almost exclusively on Greek, Turkish and Lebanese selections. A Jose Andres restaurant, Zaytinya consistently tops the best D.C. dining lists. Dress is upscale casual. Reservations are recommended for lunch and dinner. METRO: Gallery Place-Chinatown
