Morso Express, Mediterranean casual dining, opens Friday on M Street

Vox always sensed that something was missing from Georgetown’s already ample smorgasbord of restaurant offerings, but we were never sure what it was.

Maybe it was a casual Mediterranean restaurant where you can make your own kebabs? In any event, this Friday, Morso Express, a dine-in and take-out Turkish-influenced restaurant, is opening its doors at 3277 M Street, across the street from Dean and Deluca and down the street from Rhino.

And the best part is, according to Jeanne Gumbleton, a promoter for Morso, Georgetown students can initially get a discount on food.

“During the months of March and April, Morso Express will offer Georgetown University students a 20% discount when they show their Hoya ID,” Gumbleton wrote in an e-mail.

The Washington Business Journal writes that in addition to DIY kebabs, Morso Express will offer mezze and flatbread-style pizzas. “A more upscale sister restaurant, Morso, will follow in April,” WBJ‘s Missy Frederick wrote.

  1. Just went, first customers. Great food, staff is friendly. I had the steak wrap, with grilled onions, hummus, olives, and green chiles. Steak was cooked medium and was good quality. My brosef had the lamb pide (like a turkish pizza), with a fried egg on top. deeeeelish

  2. I enjoyed the food, but there was no döner kebab! What’s a Turkish takeout without döner?
