Surrounded by Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkey, and Russia, the Republic of Georgia lies right at the intersection of the Middle East, Europe, and Asia. Its unique location translates into a unique cuisine that blends all different types of dishes. When Supra opened recently, it brought this fare to the Shaw neighborhood of DC, just a stone's throw away from your apartment.
The name "Supra" refers to both a traditional Georgian feast and a signature Georgian tablecloth. Start by nibbling on a few small plates, like the eggplant nigvzit, which is eggplant stuffed with walnuts and cilantro, and the chvishtari, cheese fritters with spicy red ajika sauce. Then try one of the kachapuri, signature cheese breads stuffed with everything from spinach to an organic egg yolk. Kebabs, beef and pork dumplings, and other meat entrees round out the menu.
