Ah, a new thread! For a not-so-new place. If you go, the scamorza is out of this world. Smoked cheese with smooth melty bits and crispy grilled bits. Everything was great, but this was greatest. The only warning: do not try to go on a Saturday night without a reservation. They were packed to the gills. We managed to snag seats at the bar, and had a fantastic meal, but there are only five seats there and the last one is right up next to the door.

If I was a guy and wanted to impress a non-foodie hot girl, I would totally take her here. Because it is probably one of the most romantic restaurants in DC. Period.

No turf in this restaurant. Cut to the chase on the review
Been meaning to try Panas for a while now since it is so close to my office. Dined there last evening with my wife and had a really really enjoyable quick meal. My understanding is that the empanadas are Argentinean style so they are smaller than those at say, Julias (which is the only other empanadas place i've ever been to in DC). The restaurant is a nice space with a "hip" decor. It looks like Panas has about 15 empanadas choices. They had a number of vegetarian empanadas, steak, chicken and also tuna and shrimp ones. We both ended up ordering their meal deal which gives you a drink, three
