Paesan Kitchen & Bar
Paesan Kitchen & Bar isn't huge, so it would be pretty impossible to miss the custom-built, wood-fired oven that smokes seductively on the side of the dining room. Every day, cooks extract perfectly charred Neapolitan-style pies from this commanding fixture, their bubbling gluten-free or regular crusts strewn with gourmet toppings such as salmon belly, fontina cheese, and artichoke hearts. In the few months since Paesan (a sister restaurant to the adjacent Social Bar & Grill) opened, the pancetta and pear has emerged as an early favorite; its crispy-yet-chewy dough boasts layers of caramelized onions, arugula, gorgonzola, and fresh garlic oil. The menu also includes a few appetizers, such as Washington Sweet Bay oysters (which come fire-baked, of course), and a caprese salad seasoned with sea salt.
Throughout the day, guests can also swing by to practice their chair-sitting skills as they sip on painstakingly crafted beverages. In the morning, sunlight pours into glass pots of Mad Hat chai tea brewing right on the bar while, nearby, baristas recreate the leaves fluttering outside onto the tops of lattes brewed from Bluebeard Coffee Roasters' beans. In the evening, coffee cups are swapped for rocks glasses as bartenders begin mixing up signature cocktails such as an Italian Sunset: Creme de Cassis poured over muddled grapes and topped with a champagne float. In keeping with the Italian vibe, the wine selection features many Italian varietals, and Peroni takes top billing on the draft beer list.
