Part of Fabio Trabocchi Restaurants

Located at the District Wharf, DC's most exciting new destination, is Fabio and Maria Trabocchi's latest culinary vision.

The space, not to be outdone by the menu, is a feast for the eyes. A visit here will feel like a mini getaway with walls of windows to drink in the views, vibrant coastal hues, and layers of textures and patterns carefully selected to transport you.
