Great pasta for less: The Washington Post lists Tesoro (4400 Connecticut) among four DC-area restaurants where Italian food won’t break the bank. It notes the “charms of chef-owner Ignazio Bonanni’s recipes” and says Tesoro’s Mediterranean fettuccine is “an absurd bargain at $18.50.” Tesoro, by the way, is Italian for treasure.
Amore o odio? Speaking of Italian fare, I’m Eddie Cano (5014 Connecticut) is getting a lot attention for its name, a play on the Italian pronunciation of “Americano.” DCist polled readers, and the overwhelming response? Neutrale.
Washingtonian didn’t ask its readers what they thought. It asked a branding expert. We won’t spoil the verdict.
And Eater DC got a good look inside the restaurant. The decor? Now that’s amore.
Sushi strategy: Getting the most bang for your buck at Sushi Para (4221 Connecticut) requires some strategizing, and Washington City Paper is here to help. These six tips, it says are key to enjoying the $20.99 all-you-can-eat deal, including one on “making the waddle home a little less miserable.”
Of course Hillwood is on this list: “5 spectacular D.C. gardens you need to see right now” wouldn’t be complete without the Hillwood Museum and Gardens (4155 Linnean Avenue). Though this Post piece published in August, we wanted to bring it to your attention because Hillwood’s expert gardeners have something to showcase in all four seasons.
