D.C.’s Lillies Restaurant and Bar greets diners with a gorgeous interior that is reminiscent of a charming café in a Mediterranean hamlet, and this sophistication carries over into Lillies’ menu. The cuisine here looks as good as it tastes, and the chef uses only the best, freshest ingredients in all of the tasty dishes. Most of the fare is Italian-inspired, and both the lunch and dinner menus are full of tasty plates. Of course, you can expect a variety of toothsome pasta dishes, and there is also a great selection of salads. As for starters, you can enjoy everything from chicken wings to southwestern style egg rolls, complete with avocado and salsa. Diners also enjoy the classic fried mozzarella and bruschetta, and the main dishes are just as tasty. Panko-crusted tilapia, grilled New York strip steak, and lobster stuffed ravioli in garlic red pepper sauces are just a few that patrons love. Just steps away from the Woodley Park zoo, Lillies is fantastic place to grab a meal not far from Residences on the Avenue.
