Brian Yousefi, City Sliders: Chef Brian Yousefi has been in the food and hospitality industry for over 25 years.  He has been cooking since he was 11 years old and has had a great passion for making incredible food ever since.  Chef Brian is incredibly knowledgeable about flavors and trends within the food industry and has spent years cultivating and fine tuning a menu to bring to the Georgetown community.

 

From Zagat re: Kafe Leopold:  “Pastries so good you’ll feel you’re back in old Vienna” lure the Georgetown “ladies who lunch” to this Austrian-fusion “gem” that exudes “European flair”; “modern" furnishings and “great outdoor seating” beside a fountain make for “huge weekend crowds”, but it’s a “fun, trendy” stop all week long.

 

Mention #TakeOutTuesday when you order so we can track our impact and include any specials they are offering.
