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.

"We had a baby in our group and the front-of-the-house service was very accommodating, which was very much appreciated. Unfortunately, the back-of-the-house service was pretty terrible the rest of the night, bringing out each person's entree at different times. This is one of my pet peeves and really killed our overall impression of the restaurant. Some dishes were pretty good while others were extremely mediocre, but they all were a bit overpriced. It had a wonderful outdoor ambiance, though. Wish our experience could have been better."

"This is such a dependable, hip contemporary-american restaurant so perfectly placed in the heart of Chinatown that, in my opinion, it doesn't have any competition in the surrounding area. The food is always tasty, whether you order a burger, crab cake, or pizza, and the vibe is always hopping. Their beer selection, though, lacks in two categories: local beer and high quality beer."

Mandu's newest location, opened Jan 2011, is located at the City Vista building in the Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood. Mandu opened on 18th St. in the fall of 2006 by Chef Yesoon Lee and her two children, Jean and Danny. Chef Lee presides over the kitchen making sure that the recipes and dishes taste as she was originally taught being raised in Seoul. Her specialty is creating homestyle Korean dishes that one would enjoy in her own kitchen. Jean and Danny run the operations and service, providing a fun and energetic environment that offers the comfort and ease of a neighborhood restaurant.

"This was my first time trying Korean food and it made me into a fan of the cuisine. Happy hour prices are good--make sure you order some mandus for an appetizer. I really loved the Bibimbap as an entree. The name sounds intimidating but the flavors are wonderful--just another take on rice, meat and vegetables!"

"This is a nice restaurant with dependable Southern/Cajun food. Our dishes came out unbelievably quickly--so fast that it could not possibly be made to order--making it a pretty quick meal. Take that for what it is."
