We’re proud to be joining Dine After Dark along with other great local businesses to make dining-out more convenient for our Muslim community celebrating Ramadan. 3.5 million Americans and 1.6 billion people worldwide celebrate Ramadan, the 9th month of the Islamic calendar, as a time of reflection and charity. We’re inviting customers to “Dine After Dark,” to enjoy iftar meals at the end of daily holiday fasting.

Each of our seven locations will be participating in Dine After Dark during Ramadan until June 4, 2019. We have a variety of menu options that include vegetarian and vegan dishes, as well as halal chicken.

The Dine After Dark initiative, launched late last year by a nonprofit organization of the same name, encourages businesses to offer late-night or early-morning hours during Ramadan to better serve customers celebrating the season.

You can find our locations (DC, VA and MD) and hours here.
