Cava Mezze

The all-mezze menu at the Capitol Hill spinoff of Rockville's Cava ranges from faithful renditions of Greek classics to inventive modern interpretations, and the high-energy dining room and bar dispense with Zorba the Greek clichés. When the weather is warm, the rooftop patio is the place to hang out. 

What to get: Cubes of feta with clover honey and fresh mint; a refined taramosalata; saganaki, the salty Greek flambéed cheese; village sausages and meatballs grilled over charcoal; the cinnamon-braised beef dish known as kokinsto, with a side of olive-oil fries for catching the juices; honey-drizzled Greek doughnuts called loukoumades.

Open Tuesday through Saturday for lunch, daily for dinner, and Sunday for brunch.
