Tonight we sampled one of Arlington’s newest additions – Astor Mediterranean.
In short, we will be back.
As with any Mediterranean restaurant, there were plenty of vegetarian options. We had the fava bean platter and the falafel sandwich. The fava beans were served in a generous portion with a crisp and fresh egyptian salad, a dolma, olives, hummus, pita and a hot pepper. The falafel sandwich struck the perfect balance between the crispness of the falafel and the moistness of the tzatsiki.
There is an outside, covered, patio with a lot of seating as well as a wide selection of beer.
I ordered some hummus and baba ghanooj to go and am looking forward to enjoying it tomorrow for lunch. I am intrigued by their pizza selection and may order that next time. Although, the Astor Vegetarian plate came highly recommended by the manager tonight.
Situated near the Henry Gate of Fort Myer, this may be an “out of the way” trip from some Arlingtonians, but it’s well worth checking it out. It’s a block off of Route 50 on Pershing.
Astor Mediterranean is an excellent addition to Arlington. And, it’s close enough to bike to! Bonus.
