Alta Strada, located at 465 K St NW, Washington, DC which is worth every minute of the six minute drive from your RESA apartment, is an energetic Italian spot for pasta, pizza and daily specials, with a shopfront-like wine and cocktail bar.
Alta Strada first opened in Wellesley, Massachusetts in 2007. With a lifetime of cooking and a true love for Italian food, Chef Michael called it his dream restaurant. Eleven years later, Alta Strada has expanded to three more locations in DC, Connecticut and Northern Virginia. Since the beginning, they’ve been known to serve authentic Italian classics right from Nonna’s kitchen.
San Lorenzo, located at 1316 9th St NW, Washington, DC which clocks in at a nine minute drive from your RESA apartment, is a fashionable spot for Tuscan cooking with Italian cocktails, beer and wine in distressed-chic quarters.
When you step into San Lorenzo you’re transported to Italy — from the food and wine, to the cheerful attitude and the exquisite space. The menu features simple but perfect preparation of fine, fresh ingredients from the Tuscan region – the classic dishes with which Chef Fabbri grew up. The warm surroundings feature layers of rich texture and elements of the Monsummano town crest.
