801 Florida Ave, NW just east of 9th and U Street

In early November it was looking like Dunya was ready to open any day – well it took about a month but they’re finally open. Their website says:

“Restauranteur Hasnaa Farouidi and creative director Neema Sadeghi teamed up with Chef Rafael Viera, bringing a new spin on traditional Mediterranean cuisine.

Dunya Restaurant & Bar is a community oriented establishment, supporting local farms and butchers as often as possible.

Dunya Restaurant & Bar, located in the U St./Shaw neighborhood of Washington D.C, specializes in Modern American cuisine with a global Mediterranean twist.

Dunya Restaurant & Bar offers a diverse selection of wine from all over the world, as well as supporting local craft brewers from the greater Washington D.C area. Dunya Restaraunt & Bar is a multi level venue, with a Rooftop Bar that is slated to open Spring of 2014.”

    Today must be post only about roof top decks opening in the winter day!

    The name gave me hope that this would be a Turkish restaurant. Olmaz, ama. Quite a few pricey items on the menu.

    Menu looks interesting.

    Is this really what one should expect to pay for dinner at a neighborhood spot from now on? Having grown up in the suburbs and thinking that Chili’s was a nice place for dinner, I’m still not used to the expectation that an entree and a shared app, let alone a drink, will set me back $30 easily.

      No offense, Chilis for dinner, is like saying your going to McDonalds for a quality burger. I think if the quality can live up to the price then it’s worth it.

      think of it in terms of relative property values. what was the average cost of a home near the Chilis where you grew up? what’s the average cost of the houses around this place?

      the answer is going to be yes, this is the normal prices theses days, for dc for a “neighborhood place”.
