Cheap Eats 2013: Cafe Divan

Quick reviews of ethnic cuisines you can experience for less than $25 a person, tax and tip included.

This sleek Georgetown mezzeteria excels at all the Turkish standards: the feta-stuffed pastries called sigara borek, fabulous döner kebabs, and on Thursdays, tender slices from a whole, wood-fired lamb. On the vegetarian side, the bowls of smoky hummus, stuffed grape leaves, and robust pides—oblong-flatbreads loaded with toppings such as feta and an egg—make nice shares.
