The cherry blossoms of Washington D.C. are internationally known and celebrated, and to commemorate their blooming, Chef Liam has created a menu that leans heavily on the cherry, celebrating the arrival of spring and the connection between Washington and Umbria. This special dinner will feature a primo of red wine risotto with cherry mostarda and a secondo of lamb milanese with red wine and cherry reduction that is a mouthwatering twist on a traditional recipe. Chef Liam will join you at the table at every course to describe what has been prepared and to answer any questions you may have. This will surely be an experience that you are not soon to forget, so buy your tickets today and don’t miss out!
Our wine room is packed with noteworthy wines from every region and we’re excited to help you pick out the perfect glass for every course. Whether you select a favorite bottle (or two) from a vacation past or allow our Chef to entice your palate with a curated Wine Flight no meal would be complete without the proper pairing.

The Fine Print
Our Dinners at the Chef's Table start at 7:00pm and are fixed price, fixed menu. Guests sit communally at our chef’s table in our laboratorio demonstration kitchen and will be able to watch and interact with our Chef as their meal is prepared. Our chef will join you at every course to describe what has been prepared.
Dinners range in price from $75 to $200 for a four course meal, depending upon the specific menu. A four course wine pairing can be added for an additional $25 or guests can purchase wine to enjoy with their meal in our enoteca with no corkage fee. We call this our CYOB (Choose Your Own Bottle) program.
We seat our guests communally at a single table and ask that you arrive early in order to enjoy a complimentary pre-dinner aperitivo. This allows us to assign seats and to seat the entire group promptly at 7:00. We will do our best to accommodate late arrivals, but we will start serving once we seat the group.
