There's a time each year when Rome shimmers with a celebration known as "White Nights." It's an all-night festival of culture and the arts, but most importantly to us, it's a celebration of food and drink! Notti Bianche and Executive Chef Michael Cassady embrace this spirit each day serving seasonal, reasonably priced Italian trattoria fare throughout the day!

"Came before a show at the Kennedy Center. The service was prompt and the food very good. It's much better than the restaurant in the Kennedy Center."

Affectionately called the Embassy of Latin America in Washington, D.C., Mío has captured the hearts and palates of D.C.’s most influential Latin Americans and Washingtonians with a convivial table and “Cocina Abierta” (open kitchen) culture. Under the management and ownership of long time D.C. restaurateur, Manuel Iguina, and under Chef Giovanna Huyke's seasoned expertise, Mío presents daily a unique menu from Latin America’s most influential cuisine capitals - a menu sophisticated in flavor yet true to its origins. In our kitchen all are welcome, the summers on the beach in the Caribbean, a Sunday parillada, the corner taquería, cevichería, lechonera and the arepera, all in one place. Just south of Thomas Circle, Mío also features modern American selections in a convivial atmosphere where customers are treated with Latin hospitality. Don't miss "Puerto Rico Fridays" - with a genuine roasted lechón and expanded Puerto Rican menu. <br /><br><br><br />¡La Cocina esta Abierta!

Morimoto is a cutting-edge restaurant serving contemporary Japanese cuisine. Chef Masaharu Morimoto of Iron Chef fame prepares traditional dishes with a modern flair. Reservations will be accommodated at the sushi bar or a table; both options are fabulous! Special requests are encouraged but not guaranteed; please call the restaurant to discuss your special requests well before your reservation date.

"This place is quite pricey if you want to do the Omikase, so beware. That said, the food and its presentation was really, really good. Every plate was wonderfully executed and just the right amount of food so that by the end you're quite satisfied, but not bursting at the seams. Most of the dishes are heavy on the fish, so if you're not a fan of sushi, then you should probably stick to the a la carte menu. However, if you'd like to enjoy a culinary experience, I highly recommend this place."

"With all the good places to eat in Philadelphia, I wouldn't put this one anywhere near the top of my list, or even on the list. However, if you need a place to eat that's downtown, this will do. It's not fancy or good, but it's clean and the food isn't the worst."

Guests can anticipate cuisine from Chef Roberto Donna’s home region of Piemonte, Italy with a focus on the town of Alba. Guests can anticipate an expansive salumi and formaggi counter, plus a selection of antipasti, house-made pastas (available in small and large portions), and Neapolitan pizzas. A variety of daily specials displayed in “Italian sized” portions will also be available for sharing in the traditional Piemontese fashion.

"I had the crostini as an appetizer and they were terrible. I expected the bread to be crispy, but it wasn't even toasted. Fortunately the pasta was delicious and the service was good."

"My friends and I came here for Easter dinner, so the menu was slightly different than the usual one. The waiter was totally accommodating with our food choices when some in the party wanted things from the original menu, or when a friend who's lactose intolerant wanted a dessert made without the ice cream portion. Another friend and I split 2 of the pasta dishes and they were both delcious. Would definitely come back. Also, the price of wine bottles wasn't bad, but they have even better deals for Happy Hour."
