Homegrown Persian dining chain Moby Dick House of Kabob recently completed a remodel at its Dupont Circle and is back in the business of serving hungry office workers skewered meats and yogurt-sauced vegetables at lunch and dinner.
The long-term renovation has produced a tech-savvy addition: a new self-service kiosk. The nearly 30-year-old local brand now has just shy of two dozen locations scattered across the D.C.-Metro area, with recent additions in Shirlington, Virginia, and Potomac, Maryland.
PSA to all my fellow Dupont workers. After what seemed like FOREVER - @mobydicksonline has finally completed the remodel and is open for lunch on N between Connecticut and 19th! Complete with a self order kiosk. You're welcome. . #kabob #tzatziki #dc #dupontcircle #lunch #MobyDick #middleeasternfood #persiancuisine #persianfood #pita #popville #BYThings @popville @brightestyoungthings
Core menu items range from appetizers such as sautéed eggplant with garlic whip and lemon-spiked hummus with fresh bread, to crunchy falafel patties paired with zesty tahini sauce. Featured entrees include Mediterranean-style salads (think: olives, cabbage, and crumbled feta cheese), vegetarian offerings (grilled vegetables, mushroom melts), as well as assorted sandwiches (traditional gyros, pita roll-ups), rice dishes, daily specials, and signature lamb, chicken, and beef kabobs.
