It’s the little touches that count when dining at Odeon Cafe, an Italian bistro. The dark-wood accents, upstairs loft seating, and wood-burning oven lend the restaurant a European vibe. The Washington Post says you’ll note the “savory aromas” right away, which “confirm the decision to stay and sample the Italian cookery.” Some of those scents come from Odeon’s famed lobster dishes—part of several entrees made with seafood fresh from the docks. While you’re waiting for your main course, you can munch on complimentary Italian rolls, marinated olives, and pepperoncini. The restaurant also has a fine selection of Italian and American wines available by the glass or bottle.
