I had dinner with a friend at By The Way on Saturday night. Neither of us had been there before, and decided we would try something new. When we walked in, I was surprised at how small the place was! It's probably the size of a standard living room. It almost made me feel ostracized for not being an Annex local. A lot of the people in there appeared to be regulars.
Still, I was excited at what was to come. We had missed our reservation, but the staff had a table ready for us in a short time. When it came to decide what to eat, I had no idea what to get, it all looked so good! I went with the sweet potato soup and the combination plate, which is two pita breads with hummus, baba ghanoush, tabouleh and Isreali salad. Everything was great, and surprisingly filling. However, soon after ordering I regretted not getting the skewers. They sounded like a more satisfying Saturday night meal.
I also had a glass of Australian Shiraz which was the server's recommendation, which I very much enjoyed. It's a wine I'll make a point to try again.
I can't wait to go back to By The Way. It's charming and casual, the food is delicious and healthy and the prices are great!
