Celebrate Greek Orthodox Lent with Zaytinya

Now through April 27

In the spirit of the Eastern Orthodox Easter season, we are proud to offer a collection of Lenten specials and a Chef’s Experience, for $49, inspired by the traditional diet of this time of cleansing. Join us in Washington, DC or Frisco, TX for Zaytinya’s interpretation of a Lenten menu, featuring no meat, fish with backbones, dairy, eggs, or wine. Please note we have chosen to include olive oil, as we simply cannot imagine cooking without it.

Our special Lenten menu:

MUHAMARRA 

spread of roasted piquillo peppers, walnuts, pomegranate molasses and olive oil

HOMMUS BIL ZHOUG

puree of chickpeas with tahini and lemon, spicy jalapeno zhoug, crispy chickpeas and micro cilantro

LENTEN SPAGHETTI
