MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

With stone walls, seasonal arrangements, and Warhol-esque prints, this central DC powerhouse is equal parts retro glitz and country lodge. Before even crossing the threshold, diners are met with gracious and enthusiastic servers. While they may rhapsodize about their favorite dishes, take your time to peruse the pithy menu, complete with a sense of mystery, stunning ensembles, and playful twists.

Classic and modern elements come together in the regional Italian food, which is as likely to celebrate Roman inspiration as it is to represent Venetian flavors. Products, partially sourced from Chancellors Rock farm in Rappahannock County, are sterling as seen in the cacio e pepe remix, which takes the form of risotto with nasturtium (in place of pepper), confit beets, and tomato coulis. Crabbing here involves cabbage-wrapped crabmeat with pappa al pomodoro and intense red prawn oil, all accompanied by polenta. Comfort is king in rigatoni alla carbonara with guanciale; while palate cleansers like yuzu granité make a smooth segue to Sicilian cassata—perhaps the most colorful dessert ever.

A showy wine list littered with big names is curated for those with expense accounts and companions to impress.
