Located in Glover Park Hotel, Casolare Ristorante + Bar is a new eatery that's already becoming a local hotspot. This DC restaurant is the creation of Michael Schlow, a James Beard-award winning chef, who wanted to bring the cuisine of the Italian coast back home to DC, which is exactly what Casolare does.
The menu here is packed with Mediterranean-style seafood dishes, like grilled octopus with scallions and lemon, and swordfish steaks with spicy eggplant caponata. Of course, there's also plenty of pasta (try the kitchen's signature fedelini with tiny clams, garlic, and parsley), as well as a handful of pizzas (Yelpers praise the "bianca" topped with hot chilies and rosemary), so you’ll be able to enjoy whatever style of Italian food you prefer. The atmosphere at this restaurant is upscale without being stuffy, which makes it a popular choice for diners who want top-notch food in a laid-back atmosphere.
