Situated in the heart of the upscale Chevy Chase shopping district, the decor of this two-level restaurant celebrates the golden age of travel with steamships, planes, and the famed Orient Express rail line. Chef Derrick Jackson uses flavorful, fresh ingredients to prepare American-style cuisine in the Travel Rooms on the main level, or in the casual atmosphere of the downstairs Race Bar and Dining Room. Bar on main level, and a new outside bar and dining area.

"Very disappointing brunch. Ice cold ketchup for tepid home fries that were soft and greasy. Little ham on stale English muffin with the eggs benedict order. Server unaware of prices, menu details. Will not be back."

Finemondo features Italian Country Kitchen dining in a comfortable environment.Chef Savino Recine has "returned back to basics", with Italian flavors and a refined touch; dishes such as OssoBuco are among the results. Make sure not to miss homemade desserts, with selections such as il tiramisu and frutti di bosco.

"Too many waiters asking the same introductory questions. Servers rushed delivery and left table before I could ask a question. Lamb/beet pasta was overcooked. Very disappointing experience."
