"In the evolving U street corridor, this is really a find. The food was delicious, and the prices very reasonable. Great farm to table - good veggie dishes, chicken, short ribs, etc. Wonderful service (except they served all the food @ once!) Highly recommend..."

A modern tavern with Mediterranean roots, TESSA blends southern French and Italian cuisine from Executive Chef Cedric Tovar in a setting designed by critically acclaimed Paul Masi of Bates Masi Architects.
"While the food here is very good, the prices are quite high for the neighborhood. That would be ok if the portions weren't so tiny. The wine pours are ridiculous, a thimble full! And the noise is very loud.. Service was well meaning, but unless the price/ value ration changes, we will not return."
