In colloquial Lebanese Arabic, “ilili” means “tell me.” A casually intimate phrase, “ilili” tempts the listener to share whatever’s in their heart: a joke, a secret, a desire, or just the daily gossip. It’s always an invitation.

Take advantage of your invitation to visit The Wharf in Southwest Washington and break fresh pita at ilili DC in a three-course lunch designed exclusively for Smithsonian Associates. A culinary expression of Lebanon, ilili offers both traditional Mediterranean plates and their creative contemporary inspirations. Executive chef Satinder Vij is on hand to introduce the menu, which includes mezze, an entrée, and dessert.
