Named one of the 100 Best Restaurants 2011 by Washingtonian magazine Acacia Bistro grounds its healthful menu in Italian-infused cooking. Preface the repast with a small plate such as the baby octopus, grilled and dunked in a basil-based bath, or the perky duck confit, creating a cheer squad with foie gras and caramelized pears. An entree of farfalle frolics under a rainbow of fresh crabmeat, tangy tomatoes, and herbs, splashing in puddles of creamy vodka sauce as contentedly as a leprechaun in a pot of gold, and the veal involtini frolics amid chopped almonds, parmesan, and garlic. The sweets course is ruled by an oligarchy of mousse-cake hybrids, such as the bûche, a Yule log stuffed with candied chestnut mousse and topped with dark-chocolate mousse, made according to traditional French recipes and “nice” lists.

Cleanse the palate between courses with one of an encyclopedic list of globe-trotting wines. Alfresco addicts adore Acacia Bistro’s outdoor seating, and inside two walls of soaring windows stretch up to meet the high ceilings, providing perfect acoustics for thanking the kitchen via three-part vocal harmony.
