    Hidden Gem on Cathedral Ave. NW

    My 2nd time at this wonderful Italian Restaurant on the ground floor of the Westchester Apts. on Cathedral Ave. NW. Hard to find unless you know where to look; it does not face a street. Must enter from courtyard. Wonderful food and service. Waitress was very helpful with menu. Enjoyed the Melanzana (eggplant) Parmigiana as an appetizer, every pasta dish we tried and the lemon sole. When they have it on the menu, the cheesecake is excellent, better than mine!

    One of DC's Best Kept Secrets

    One of Washington's best kept secrets. Not many places can you get soup or salad, entree which includes choice of pasta, rice or potatoe plus vegetable, and dessert and coffee for $18.50 to $20.50. For special treats, try the cold cucumber yogurt soup and the Turkish style calf's liver. As a person who has always disliked calf's liver, I could not believe my taste buds. I have eaten there on numerous occassions, and have never been disappointed.

    Last of the Breed

    Once upon a time, every elegant apartment house worthy of the name in Washington had its own restaurant. Several wars and the Great Depression took their toll, and now only the Westchester Dining Room is here to remind us of what we have lost. In classic rooms decorated by Dorothy Draper, famous interior designer, one can eat good food at good prices. Under the stewardship of the Muslu family (Chef Haki, his wife, and children), good care is taken of those who come in to eat or who use the restaurant's catering services. A private room and terrace are available for private parties, and if you don't see what you like on the menu, the Muslu's will try to accommodate. Haki will make an omelette on request or get shad roe in in season. His Turkish dishes are very tasty too.
