From a press release:

“The National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) is pleased to announce the reopening of its Mezzanine Café. Located in the museum’s elegant building at 1250 New York Avenue, NW in Washington, D.C., the café will be open for weekday lunches from 11 a.m.–2 p.m. The menu includes Caesar salads with smoked salmon or grilled chicken, a Wagyu burger, a roasted vegetable flatbread with marinated eggplant and a quiche du jour. Dishes run from $8–15.

The café owner Iliana Paravalou is joined by her husband Pantelis Paravalos and her parents Effie and Christos Damigos, who ran a café for The Star Ledger newspaper in Newark, N.J. for 15 years.

“We are honored to work alongside NMWA on its beautiful mezzanine level, which provides a lovely, relaxing atmosphere for patrons,” said Paravalou. “We provide excellent customer service and look forward to offering a menu of rotating seasonal items, including weekly specials inspired by Italian and French recipes. We craft in-house dressings and vinaigrettes and serve top-quality Wagyu meat.”

To welcome new patrons, the Mezzanine Café will offer a free coffee, tea or soda with purchase when the code “opening” is used through Nov. 8, 2013. Reservations are available at 202-628-1068. Walk-in customers are welcome. There is no museum admission fee in order to visit the café.”
