Columbus Day Weekend (Part 1)

With the election mere weeks away, and the promise of a 3 day weekend for most (not me.. I don’t want to talk about it..), the District has been filled with events this weekend!

Where to begin…

Friday night I went out for dinner at Floriana Restaurant in Dupont Circle.

I was silly and did not take pictures but luckily the unpaid gourmet did a review of the restaurant and I will be borrowing some pictures below!

This top rated Italian fare did not disappoint! I ordered the Tortolloni Mignon and have nothing but amazing things to say–  the pasta was cooked to perfection, the meat inside was mouth-watering…

yummmmm the tortolloni on the left

Before the meal we were served quickly with bread and pesto, offered a multitude of wine choices and even graced with the presence of the Chef!

Housed inside of a row house, the atmosphere is cozy and surprisingly since we missed our original reservation (parking fail!) we waited only 5 minutes for another seating.

mmm perfection! Will definitely be back:)
