Divino dishes out lunch and dinner menus stacked with elegant mounds of Argentine fare as well as an array of worldly wines to attract diners interested in broadening their culinary horizons. Starters such as the chorizo picante ($7), spicy Argentine sausage, rouse hibernating stomachs from after-lunch comas, and entrees such as the grilled skirt steak ($19) provide carnivorous sustenance for recently reformed hunters and gatherers. A whole lobster served with a combination of seafood paella ($47) serves dining duos who enjoy sharing meals, bank accounts, and secrets gleaned from the bribery of magicians who make lobsters disappear. More than 30 tapas plates make it easy to spoil neglected taste buds with disparate flavors, and grape-graced libations from Argentina, California, Chile, and Spain highlight an extensive wine list.
A visual feast also awaits guests at Divino, where track lighting lends an ebb-and-flow look to the vivid reddish-orange hue hugging the walls, which themselves are home to dozens of pieces of large, colorful art pieces and framed photos. Two chrome pillars bookend a sleek bar area, where yellow backlighting renders the selection of libations as visible as a snowman in a crowd of black-clad ninjas. A few flowing white curtains make the décor’s effulgence pop even more and match the elegant tablecloths laid on each cuisine surface in the dining area, which is set apart from the establishment’s front-end bar and lounge territory. The lounge area adjacent to the bar beckons wine sippers with supple cushioning built into its black-leather couches. Angled wooden ceilings ensure that visitors can look in any direction to discover a pleasant aesthetic and surface at which they are not allowed to throw a Nerf football.
Divino Lounge & Restaurant
At this authentic South American steak house, customers never want for options. The menu of Argentinean meats and seafood is buttressed by a selection of more than 30 hot and cold tapas and a colossal wine and martini list of international libations. The sips cool overexcited taste buds and pair with lauded entrees such as the parrilla of bone-in short ribs, singled out by Washingtonian as one of Bethesda's greatest dishes. Popular seafood platters arrive in the form of whole lobsters, accompanied by enough seafood paella to sate two diners. To ensure that their sizzling meats are shared with the masses, chefs can also export the fare to private bashes or teddy-bear picnics with catering services.
The eatery's décor reflects its exotic eats: spotlights set orange walls ablaze and highlight paintings more colorful than a Rubik's cube hidden in jello. Clusters of leather couches exude a casual air, providing a sleek contrast to the chic table settings and white linens at booths and tables. Proving that elegance needn't be fussy, customers can also master dance steps at milonga lessons on Wednesdays or host parties in the space almost every day of the week.:m]]
