... and the Italian goddess of food, Edesia, to boot !
DC or close Virginia only please.
My uncle, who I think is connected, is coming to town and I've been tasked with finding an old school italian place to take him to. Less Tony Soprano, more Johnny Sack.
Think corner table, back to the wall, men kissing each other on the cheek, block of parm on the table, not ordering with a menu, dishes you didn't order just "showing up", etc.
Spezie?
D'Acqua?
Tosca?
Obelisk?
Cork? Proof? Enoteca?
Or throw him for a loop... show him what DC is all about... and take him to Courduroy!
(He went to Filimina already.. and liked it, but I think he fell for the "experience" more than the food... you know, those Italian waiters, Georgetown, how could you not like it?)
