Zaytinya Debuts New Patio and Seasonal Cocktails
José Andrés and his team at the award-winning restaurant Zaytinya are excited to debut the newly renovated outdoor patio. The expansive 70-seat terrace features modern design elements giving the space a dramatic and urban ambiance.
Large artistic tulip-shaped umbrellas preside over the space in a beautifully grouped eye-catching presentation. Modern patio furniture includes beautiful teak tables alongside white stainless chairs designed by Philippe Starck for Kartell. The patio also features a communal table centerpiece fitting up to 16 guests, which is available for large party reservations by contacting [email protected]. The Zaytinya patio is open, weather permitting, every day for full-service lunch and dinner

In October of 2002, Zaytinya opened its doors at 701 9th St, NW, in the Penn Quarter joining Andrés’ Jaleo. It helped transform the neighborhood into one Washington’s top dining destinations. Known as a culinary innovator, Andrés opened Zaytinya based on his extensive knowledge of Mediterranean cooking and years of research and travel. A decade later, Zaytinya continues to be a cornerstone of this thriving neighborhood ranking among Washington’s top culinary experiences and continues to amaze guests with its unique and authentic mezze menu inspired by Turkish, Lebanese and Greek cuisines.
