Owner Rose Previte spent three years traveling across the globe, picking up favorite dishes along the way. At this neighborhood joint in the hot 14th and U Streets area, she serves bites from Greece (grilled calamari with quinoa, toasted pistachio and feta), Lebanon (fattoush with sumac vinaigrette) and Venezuela (arepas with lamb neck) and more from culinary destinations in South America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. The drinks are beloved here, and the namesake libation, made with sparkling wine, pomegranate liquer and rose water, is a particular highlight.
