The area’s restaurant scene continues to attract national attention and accolades for its quality and diversity.
Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema has named Zinnia one of his 6 Favorite Places to Eat Right Now, noting that the restaurant has something for everyone, met with service that is “spot on, efficient and enthusiastic”:
Hot apple cider? Check. Something for vegetarians? One option is soup flavored with squash and red pepper. I’ll be back for brunch again, too. Crackling bread, fried Gulf shrimp, shaved onions, and housemade bread and butter pickles add up to a swell po’ boy.
Last September, The Restaurant at Zinnia opened under the direction of Chef Danny Wells, bringing together the gardens, the tavern, and the recently opened café to offer customers a variety of dining options. Republic, which Wells opened in Takoma Park in 2013, closed last September after a nearly ten-year run.
