Dupont Circle standby Agora brings its Mediterranean meze menu to Northern Virginia tomorrow, when it opens a new location in Tysons Corner (7911 Westpark Drive, McLean).
The menu from Lebanese chef Ghassan Jarrouj will feature D.C. favorites like kibbeh nayeh, grilled octopus, and braised short ribs. New items exclusive to the Tysons location include , tortellini in a yogurt and mint sauce and duck pide — a Turkish flatbread topped with shredded duck confit and a fig balsamic reduction.
The new 4,000-square-foot eatery sits on the ground floor of the Nouvelle building. Urbane Architects and Sorrell Design mixed blue hues with ornate touches like intricate basket weaves, mosaic lamps and kaleidoscopic inlays. All of the woodwork was sourced direct from Turkey, inspired by the Mediterranean country’s art and culture.
The beer and wine list show love for both Mediterranean vineyards and local beer and wine.
Agora in Tysons will start serving its dinner and late-night menus immediately. Lunch and brunch will roll out the week of Monday, July 29.
