Iron Gate, Washington, DC

It is easy to walk by Iron Gate and that would be a mistake.  The entrance is actually in an alley between two buildings.  Past the bar is a charming patio area, covered with wisteria and grapes.  Further, is what I imagine was at one time a carriage house and now the main dining room of the restaurant.  The interesting menu is Greek and Italian influenced with a strong presence of vegetables.  Everything sounded appealing.  It was difficult to make a decision!
