Nonstop Hookahs


Recent renovations to the old Arbor Restaurant have left some people wondering if the Adams Morgan wine bar was planning a comeback. It's not. Sometime in the next week, the 'hood will welcome Prince Cafe, a shisha lounge and Middle Eastern restaurant that owner Ihab Asal says will be open around the clock on weekends.

A local chain with cafes in Georgetown, College Park and Falls Church, Prince Cafe's main draw is its selection of shisha pipes (often called hookahs) filled with flavored tobacco. What we're most interested in, though, is the menu -- competition for the Diner and Amsterdam Falafel, nevermind the purveyors of fat-laden Jumbo Slice pizzas. Asal says the kitchen will serve food "all the hours we are open" -- until 3 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and 24 hours on Friday and Saturday, turning out tandoori platters, gyros and curries. (Fellow Guru Rhome Anderson, who frequents the College Park branch, insists the chicken saag should not be missed.)

Try the biryani (chicken or lamb). If it's anything like what they offer at the Georgetown location, it's to die for.
