Philos Opens at 4th & Mass

Wednesday May 27, 2015

Philos opened on April 8th at 401 Massachusetts Avenue with a menu that sources locally and features mezze (small plates) from the Mediterranean basin, including Lebanon, Greece, Morocco, Italy and Spain. The menu’s core ingredients are garlic, lemon, and legumes, including chickpeas and lentils, as well as veggie favorites such as kale, tahini and Brussels sprouts. Philos’ menu includes many unique features, such as a warm cheese selection. Philos is also wine-centric, with a focus on Mediterranean wines, as well as local selections from VA. They are open for lunch and dinner from 11 AM until last call every night (2 AM on weekdays, 3 AM on weekends) with happy hour specials Monday through Friday from 4-7 PM. They also join the great MVT weekend brunch tradition from 11 AM – 4 PM. Sign up for their newsletter at and follow them on Twitter @philosdc.
