Albi @ Spoken English
Opening in Summer 2019, Albi is chef/owner Michael Lee Rafidi’s contemporary vision of Middle Eastern cooking, as seen through the lens of Modern American techniques and Mid-Atlantic ingredients.
Ahead of opening, chef Rafidi is taking over for a two-night pop-up, Sunday March 3 & Monday March 4, at Erik Bruner-Yang’s Spoken English at the LINE DC.
Named Eater D.C.’s 2017 Chef of the Year, Rafidi says Albi will be an avenue for him to cook from the heart and riff off what he ate as a kid growing up in Montgomery County. The pop-up will reflect a journey through the Levant, the Eastern Mediterranean region that includes Palestine, Lebanon, and Jordan. (via Eater DC)
