Modern Mediterranean favorite Agora will open the doors to its newest location in Tysons Corner.

The 4,000-square-foot eatery features a custom brick oven and is the official northern Virginia outpost of the original Agora, a delicious and beloved Dupont Circle mainstay for nearly a decade.
The new Agora Tysons feature a mezzanine level, a 12-seat chef’s bar overlooking the kitchen — which is helmed by Chef Ghassan Jarrouj — and an authentic charcoal grill.
Located on the ground floor of the stunning Nouvelle residences in the heart of Tysons Corner, Agora offers dinner and late-night menus, with lunch and brunch rolling out the week of July 29. The exciting mezze menu features a host of Mediterranean favorites along with new Tysons-exclusive dishes including Kibbeh Naya (Lebanese steak tartare), Duck Pide (shredded duck confit flatbread drizzled with a fig balsamic reduction) and Barak (tortellini stuffed with Lebanese-inspired flavors in a yogurt and mint sauce).
An extensive beverage program, curated in collaboration with GMDC Hospitality, showcases authentic flavors as well, incorporating Raki (a sweetened anise-flavored spirit), rose liqueur, aromatic spices and more in unique craft concoctions. A comprehensive wine and beer list, featuring the Mediterranean and local D.C.-area vineyards and breweries, also joins the beverage menu.
Renowned D.C. architecture and design brands Urbane Architects and Sorrell Design have infused the new Agora with Turkish decor and flair, combining airy cool and warm hues with ornate touches like an intricate basket weave, mosaic lamps, and kaleidoscopic inlays.
