Elle Magazine calls his new restaurant "power-lunch-appropriate Italian bistro," and Yeas & Nays now reports it will open in June (it was previously supposed to open in March).
The menu will be tasting menu style, which Fargione says is a booming style that he wants to capitalize on. The kitchen will be semi-open, but the restaurant will also feature an observation deck equipped with high definition televisions that live-stream the meal preparation.
The price will depend on how many items you want to order, but will be about $80 for six to eight courses, $100 for 10 to 12 courses, and $145 for 14 or 15 courses.
Lunch will be slightly different to accommodate for its faster-pace. There will be about 15 options on that menu for $15, including a glass of wine.
The restaurant will be over 4,000 square feet big, seating 90 patrons in the dining room, 20 in the bar, and another 20 in a private room, according to the Downtown D.C. Business Improvement District.
