Weave A Thousand Flavors Supper Club, 2022!
APRIL | 2022
NOSTOS | MODERN GREEK
How wonderful it will be to see you all once again; to gather together, to break bread, to share stories that have been left unshared for nearly two years. Can't wait!
This Spring, as we kick off our supper club series for 2022, we are heading to a restaurant that has been on my supper club radar for at least a year. The food is incredible, the ambience sublime and it is hands down one of my favorite Greek restaurants in our region.
Nostos is at the root of the word nostalgia and means a return to one’s origins, a longing for a special time in our past. Nostos presents a fresh, modern take on Greek culinary culture.
With this philosophy in mind, featured are wonderful and traditional dishes like fresh fish from the Mediterranean Sea, such as branzino, dorado and sardines, seasoned with extra virgin Greek olive oil. In addition, they offer a wide variety of “mezedes”, or small sharing-sized dishes, which are an integral part of Greek dining and reflect the idea that eating is about sharing and socializing.
As with all our past suppers, we bring together a selection of the best plates so that everyone enjoys a taste of the incredible variety offered. Whether to pair with food or simply for the pleasure of your palate, we enjoy our meal with wines from Greece, a country where Dionysus, the mythical god of wine, has been worshipped for thousands of years.
As we graze over delicious eats bursting with fresh flavors, let's toast over a cocktail and enjoy a lovely Saturday evening over our food-laden table in the warm company of old friends and new.
Our evening will begin with a Cocktail hour in the bar for 30 mins where small bites will be served like swordfish skewers and tapenade & feta on pita followed by a sit down dinner of 8 courses + a selection of desserts.
I hope you'll join our table!

Here's what past guests had to say"
"It's always a great experience when you celebrate a meal with the Weave A Thousand Flavors Supper Club. The Lapis restaurant had great tasting authentic Afghani food served by a friendly and professional staff in a controlled yet bustling environment. The memories that I reflect on, as I think of our first outing of 2019, are the ones that celebrate the gastronaut members that make up the supper club. I enjoyed the welcoming atmosphere, the offering of friendship and the sharing of a meal as we celebrate the experience of breaking bread together. It just feels like home!!"
"What a great way to enjoy some fantastic food at a new place and meet with old friends and new! Devaki always picks such wonderful places for a true DC dining experience. Can’t wait for the next outing!"
"Every Supper Club experience is unique in delicious cuisine and ambiance, and there's no better group with which to share them!"
"Maydan was spectacular. Tucked away off Florida Ave, it is a hidden gem. The many courses of sumptuous food were so flavorful and perfectly prepared...from the assortment of appetizers to the lamb that was cooked for 72 hours. I particularly loved the squid! The company was fabulous and I met several new friends I hope to stay in touch with. All in All, worth every penny! Can’t wait to do it again!"
