A Lebanese-owned restaurant made the list of the “18 Best New Restaurants in America” recently released by foodie site Eater.com.
The restaurant Maydan is a Middle Eastern-style establishment located in the Washington, DC area.
It is owned by Lebanese-American Rose Previte, whose mother has roots in Detroit, Michigan. She works alongside co-executive chefs Gerald Addison and Chris Morgan.
Eater called on readers to “Zoom in on dishes that particularly reflect Previte’s Lebanese heritage, including spreads like muhammara.” The restaurant offers “a warm greeting at the room-length bar,” Eater added.
In their original review of the restaurant, Eater said Maydan, “proudly and distinctly showcase the traditions of individual North African and Middle Eastern countries.”
The self-described Middle Eastern and North African restaurant serves food that “tells the story of our own travels, from Tangier to Tehran and Batumi to Beirut,” according to their website.
Maydan is located at 1346 Florida Ave NW, Washington, DC 20009. For more information, visit their website at this link.
