Ghibellina is an Italian Gastro Pub brought to you by the owner of Acqua al 2, Ari Gejdenson, and his Mindful Restaurants team. The inspiration behind this project was drawn from his days living in Florence. On a daily basis, he would eat lunch at his favorite Trattoria, Fiaschetteria Trattoria Mario, and fell in love with the idea of creating a comfortable place where diners feel at home every time they walk through the door. The name is derived from the street, Via Ghibellina, where he and Ralph Lee, childhood friend and partner in Ghibellina, shared an apartment. The two made the walk from one end of the via to Ari’s American Diner on a daily basis to serve American food to students and locals alike. Executive Chef, Jonathan Copeland, has teamed up with this duo and has matched their passion and dedication to executing an authentic Tuscan menu in the heart of the 14th street Corridor.

Chef Isabella serves seasonal, artisanal pizzas and small plates inspired by the food he grew up eating in New Jersey prepared by his Italian-American grandmother. With heavy influence from Chef Isabella’s Mediterranean and Latin culinary training, Graffiato is anything but a traditional Italian eatery. Roasted potato gnocchi with pork ragu, chicken thighs with pepperoni sauce, charred octopus with tomato mostarda and mint, and hanger steak with pancetta and wild mushrooms are a few of the signature wood oven roasted dishes. Broccolini with red pepper relish and smoked beets with sheep’s milk ricotta are popular first plates. When the kitchen closes, the oven will stay fired to feed Washingtonians looking for a late-night bite.

"Second time there, absolutely delicious. Ceasar salad is a little heavy on the dressing but the cream cheese croutons are awesome. Great pizzas, great pasta. Going back this weekend!"

Le Grenier - attic, in English - is a space to enjoy French Cuisine with a great wine selection or craft cocktail in a vintage attic décor, a cozy atmosphere with intimate ambiance on the vibrant H corridor. Chef Thierry Sanchez offered a menu of French dishes with frequent changes that reflect the seasons.

"Food was decent. Went in with high expectations because of online reviews, but left thinking it wasn't any better than some of my favorite brunch spots (in fact, I would argue that the food was actually not as tasty as some other DC brunch hot spots.) I did the brunch special (1 drink, 1 appetizer or dessert, 1 entree) -- their version of french toast was so buttery that when I cut into it with a fork and knife, the grease oozed out. Tasty, but soooo greasy!"

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.
