Located in Washington DC’s Dupont Circle neighborhood, Urbana’s menu focuses on contemporary Italian cuisine. Drawing on the culinary traditions from Northern Italy, Chef Ethan McKee delivers food that encourages patrons to linger over a mix of both light and indulgent dishes. The menu is complemented by a beverage program featuring craft cocktails, classic Italian amaros, and unique Italian wines. Urbana exudes warm hospitality in a modern setting, making it a perfect gathering place for dining and drinks.

"We were spending the night in Georgetown, and searched Mediterainian restaurants on Open Table. We reserved at Urbana.
Upon arrival the restaurant was empty, but the bar was full. We were seated and scanned the menu; 'isn't this a Mediterainian Cuisine', I asked our waiter?
"Well, not so much anymore. We're more contemporary Italian."
Food was very oily, and we were very disappointed.

Operated by the award-winning Big Night Entertainment Group, Empire is a 14,000-square-foot boutique Asian restaurant and lounge located in the Seaport area of Boston, just steps from the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Empire offers a tantalizing menu from executive Chef Kevin Long (Tosca, Shrine, Red Lantern, GEM, Scorpion Bar), stylized interior and ethereal atmosphere that will transport guests to another world. With a capacity of 600 guests and three 40-seat private dining rooms that open up to one large private event space, Empire can accommodate groups of all sizes for receptions and seated dinners.

"We were in the area and wondered about a wise choice for dinner. Open Table presented several restaurants in the vicinity, but as a vegan this looked great.
It's simply amazing! There's an open kitchen which bustles with apparent organization and energy. The dishes are so uniquely beautiful that it forces us to chat with people next us; "wow. What is that? I'll have one of those!"
We were a bit over zealous and took a bag of leftovers home; they were still decadent morels the following day!
We highly recommend that you get in on this!
