Enjoy Chef Geoff's genuine hospitality and casual cuisine with an Italian flair. Lia’s is a neighborhood restaurant in the heart of Chevy Chase. Come for a glass of wine, hand tossed pizzas, fresh pasta, or charcuterie and cheese, and the result will be the same. You'll be back for more. Join us on Sundays for brunch and every Monday for half price wines. Enjoy our ever-popular happy hour daily from 3pm to 7pm and all night on Monday and Tuesday. An eighty seat patio provides some of the best outdoor dining in the area. We truly have something for everyone and look forward to welcoming you. Cheers! Chef Geoff

"We enjoyed our dinner at Lia's, but the service was just not excellent. We will return, though. The carpaccio and the brie appetizers were delicious, as was the short rib, veal piccata and sausage pasta."

Michel Richard's modern American brasserie,and winner of the 2008 James Beard award for best new restaurant is located on Penn. Ave NW between the White House and the Capitol. We serve Michel's tribute to great American cuisine, both modern and classic, with a French accent. A vibrant bar scene with boutique beer and wines, and modern and classic cocktails.

"The service nearly ruined the food experience. We waited more than 45 minutes after ordering to receive our food, despite the fact that others who had arrived after us were eating (or had already left)! After asked our server three times, she finally delivered the food and blamed the kitchen for the mixup. She ultimately offered a free dessert, but the poor service put a real damper on the lunch."

Ella"s American Bistro features transitional American cuisine, interpreted through a contemporary French vision, perfectly balancing classical flavors with locally grown and seasonally sourced ingredients. <br /><br />The concept of the menu is portrayed in the timeless post-modern décor of the restaurant which establishes a warm and inviting atmosphere.<br /><br />Delicious food and great drinks pair seamlessly with a beautiful atmosphere - stop by for a classic cocktail and a quick bite at the bar, enjoy a wonderful experience in the dining room, or host your next event in our private banquet area.<br />

"Our server was fantastic and the food was mostly excellent. Only caveat is that I am on a low sodium diet and generally have found that fine restaurants (similar to Ella's) can accommodate my needs. I selected a few entrees from the menu and asked the server to check with the chef to determine which would have the least sodium. To my surprise, the chef responded that he/she salts all meats and fish when they first arrive at the restaurant, so I had virtually no choices for a protein with little salt. My meal of tuna, which was recommended as the least salty option, was disappointing (and fairly salty). My companions thoroughly enjoyed their meals (wiith no dietary restrictions)."
