Albi’s Allure

Celebrating Levantine fare in Navy Yard

Albi—which means “my heart” in Arabic—is going strong in DC’s Navy Yard. Opened in February, it now offers indoor dining and takeout. Chef Michael Rafidi pays homage to his Middle Eastern heritage, incorporating local produce and meats in his cuisine. The enticing menu offers an array of hummus plates, mezze and grilled entrées. Grupo7 designed the modern interior with distressed-wood paneling, richly colored tilework and an open kitchen with live fire and a wood-fired pita oven. 1346 4th Street, SE; 202-921-9592. albidc.com
