The Plate • Fresh ingredients, carefully prepared: a good meal
50 - 75 USD
Located at CityCenterDC, this bright, inviting spot is part-osteria—equipped with a wood-burning oven—and part-market, offering goods like homemade pasta, pastries and coffee, to go. Inside, you’ll find big windows overlooking colorful boutiques, an open kitchen, and a granite bar for sipping cocktails. The beverage program also offers a list of apertivi and Italian wines, arranged by region. Chef Amy Brandwein's menu is divvied into categories like antipasti, pasta and large plates, many prepared in the famed oven. Think wildly delicious seafood starters like Hawaiian tuna crudo; or gently fried soft-shell crab with shishito aïoli. Dinner staples include tangles of fettuccine in a savory white Bolognese; or a young, perfectly roasted Amish chicken.
