At Gran Gusto, we pride ourselves on the best quality for a great price. We are a completely in-house production, starting with fresh, basic ingrediants in order to create homemade bread to desert. Over 80% of our products come from Italy one time a week such as, olive oil, flour, truffles, specialty cheeses, bufala mozzarella for the Neopolotan-style pizza, ice cream and etc.

"We had a 2-block walk on a beautiful day. Loved the décor. Food was good. We did have a problem with the server because she didn't speak a word of English. I would be glad to return, when in that neighborhood."

"This is my second visit. The first time I had dinner and couldn't wait to go back again. Everything was perfect! This time (lunch) was not memorable. The waiter was okay. We asked for recommendations without curry and "not too spicey". He wasn't helpful, even though he knew the menu well and did try. Service all around was just okay."

Reservations are not required. Contact us for large parties or special events. Feel free to contact us regarding our seating policy. Yes, we do serve brunch/lunch on Sunday with a great prix fixe including French Toast, Steak and Eggs, Eggs Benedict and bottomless bloody Marys, mimosas and screwdrivers. During the evenings, Medium Rare offers a unique, prix fixe dinning experience of artisan bread; a mixed green salad; prime, dry-aged steak; and hand-cut fries in a relaxed, fun, neighborhood environment. As we do only one thing, we do our best to make the food and experience exceptional and also a good value. There are only a few wine, spirits, and draft beer choices, but each were selected specifically to accompany your meal. We offer an off-the-menu vegetarian option. Please contact us to inquire.

Our mission is to bring you a seasonal menu, rooted in American tradition that showcases the Mid-Atlantic's ingredients. Our produce is organic or sustainable whenever possible; our meats are naturally-raised; our seafood wild or sustainable. We support local artisanal cheese makers, growers, ranchers, fisherman, and encourage you to do the same by buying local at our farmer's market or grocery.

"I was at Redwood years ago and went on 6/17 because they gave us a reservation at the last minute, which they did honor. I didn't like it the first time I ate there and don't intend to go again."
