Yamas Mediterranean Grill Coming to former Subway Space at 16th/U/New Hampshire Ave, NW

1946 New Hampshire Ave, NW

Thanks to a reader for sending word:

“Back in January, you blogged about the Subway closing at 16th/NewHampshire/U Street. On Saturday, I walked by and there was some construction going on. A man happened to walk out, and when I asked him what was going in there, he said it would be a Yamas Mediterranean Grill.  I’ve gotten takeout from the one in Bethesda a few times, it’s pretty good. Certainly an upgrade over the Subway.”

Yamas’s website says:

“”Yamas” is a word of Greek origin (Γεια µας) that means “to our Health” and is like “Cheers” around dining tables in Greece and around the world. We are dedicated to providing the best quality tasting food based on the Mediterranean diet for lunch on the “go” or sitting with a table of mezzes (small plates) philosophizing with your friends and family.

We are proud to offer a Mediterranean Menu using only naturally raised antibiotic free meats, olive oil, fresh fruits and vegetables – including locally sourced and organic when available.

Enjoy our delicious signature dishes featuring hand made lamb and beef gyros, our juicy Yamas rotisserie chicken marinated with lemon and spices served with fresh sides and fresh grass-fed beef burgers with fresh cut potatoes fried in olive oil. Don’t leave without trying the Opa! Fries! – Hand cut fries with feta cheese mixed together for an amazing side.

Yamas above all is a state of mind. A place where the mind clears and the Mediterranean region’s timeless culinary traditions, vibrant cultures and passionate zest for life come alive.”

  • Looks pretty good and the prices at their other location are spot on.

  • Seems similar to Mediterranean Spot @ U and 15th except with burgers.

    • Hopefully with better food. After 3 or 4 attempts, I have to say that the Mediterranean Spot’s gyro is just nasty.

  • I live down the block, YUM!

    Looks way better than Subway. Do we know a proposed opening date?

  • The other mediterranean spot is more of a middle eastern style med cuisine. This is Greek. Similar names and dishes but a different style for each.

    Looking forward to it.

  • That space is tiny though. Their Bethesda location is 50 seats and even with a small outdoor patio it can’t be more than 20-25. Must be banking on take out. Hope they do delivery too. As much as we like Greek Spot, it’s getting a little boring.
