About Green Almond Pantry

1314 9th St NW
Washington, DC 20001

This eight-seat lunch counter and market serves the kind of Mediterranean fare you fantasize about stumbling across in a cobblestone alley somewhere far away. The giant chalkboard lists the daily specials. We loved a puntarelle salad with an anchovy kick, focaccia bursting with sweet tomatoes, and the whole fried artichoke with nothing but lemon and parsley. Don’t skip a wedge of the chocolate cake with whipped cream. Inexpensive.
