Tysons After Dark: Inside Newly Opened Mediterranean Eatery Agora

Tysons may not have the liveliest nightlife at the moment, but that could soon change as more late-night restaurants and places to hang out open. “Tysons After Dark” will highlight a different spot every week.

Tysons has a new Mediterranean restaurant that plans to serve up happy hour specials and a late-night menu.

After a long series of delaysAgora opened at the Nouvelle (7911 Westpark Drive) last week.

The 4,000-square-foot, split-level eatery features Turkish decor — the furniture is from Turkey — with seating for 150 people. The restaurant also boasts basket weave, mosaic lamps, kaleidoscopic inlays, a private dining area and a 12-seat chef’s bar by the kitchen.

The tapas-style menu from Lebanese chef Ghassan Jarrouj blends Turkish, Lebanese and Greek flavors, with dishes like veal tongue, pan-seared scallops served with grapefruit over saffron yogurt and fried cauliflower with tahini sauce and sumac.

While diners can also find Agora in D.C., the Tysons spot has new, exclusive dishes including Lebanese steak tartare, shredded duck confit flatbread with a fig balsamic reduction and tortellini with a yogurt and mint sauce.

Agora currently serves dinner. Lunch and brunch menus are set to roll out the week of July 29, according to a press release.
