Agora is where you go when you forgot your friends were visiting and you need a five-person table on two hours notice and Emma just texted you, “You took care of dinner, right?” It gets overlooked for the trendier spots in Dupont, but the Mediterranean food is pretty good. It won’t be the best you’ve ever had, but between the flatbreads, salads, and mezes, you’re bound to find something you like. Use it for something last minute, and Emma will think you planned it for weeks.
