Michael DeFrancisci is the third generation owner of A. Litteri, D.C.'s oldest Italian grocery store. His grandfather and great uncle, Mariano DeFrancisci and Antonio Litteri were the original operators in 1926, before A. Litteri was moved to its current location. A. Litteri is the perfect place to come for authentic, old-school Italian foods. In fact, Michael still orders many of the same older brands so that traditional customers can depend on particular products. For modern customers, he seeks out products from all over his motherland. With a selection of over 80 brands of olive oil alone, it's clear why A. Litteri's has been around so long.
Wings over Washington's friendly staff paints its menu of winged masterpieces with a delicious palette of 18 flavors and five buffalo-sauce styles.

Beat your personal best by speed-eating a half-pound DC-3 of boneless bites ($6.49), or gather a group of airship aficionados to demolish the 6 lb. zeppelin of spineless wings ($59.99), adding orders of french fries ($2.49 for a small) and onion rings ($2.99 for a small) to dam up teriyaki and honey-mustard reservoirs. Flight-phobic diners can stay grounded with hamburgers ($5.99) and half racks of ribs ($8.99), sharing napkins and sticky high-fives with their wing-eating amigos.

Though they hail from different corners of the world, business partners Aaron McGovern and Arturas Vorobjovas and their shared passion for food begat Russia House. Raised in Lithuania on his father’s traditional Russian recipes, Arturas works with executive chef Andrew LaPorta to pack Russia House’s bill of fare with authentic offerings such as line-caught sturgeon, plump pelmini dumplings, and a selection of caviar. These rich Russian staples grace white tablecloths and elegant place settings inside Russia House's stately interior. Here, mirrors reflect light that bursts through large windows. In the upstairs lounges, plush booths cradle diners and occasional live piano music permeates the airwaves.
