At Sonoma Restaurant and Wine Bar, our culinary mission is straightforward - use the best local ingredients as simply as possible. New American Cuisine places an emphasis on seasonal ingredients that are regionally available, and our menu changes frequently to reflect the Mid-Atlantic’s offerings. The first floor, a bustling, “upscale-casual” bistro and wine bar, offers superior moderately-priced cuisine by using the best local, organic, and naturally raised ingredients. The menu bears a southern European influence, and is comprised of four groups: cheese and charcuterie, handmade pasta and pizzas, wood-grilled meats and fish, and organic salads and produce. The second floor features a lounge and reserve wine bar along with a dining room for private events. Reservations are strongly recommended and can be taken by telephone or through OpenTable.<br />$20/bottle corkage fee (2 bottle maximum)<br />$3/person cake fee (including cupcakes)

"This is my second time there and the food was great! I had a spinach gnocchi that was outstanding and my friend had a great burger! If you're going to Capital Hill and/or to the Folger, this is the place to go!"

"It was a busy Saturday night and the food showed little attention. The branzino/breen was flavorful, but too buttery. The moussaka was burned on top. The 4th person had a lamb dish that eh said was good. We would go back, btu look at other people/s plates to see what looked like it was well prepared."

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

"The 4 of us enjoyed our meals and the service was friendly and very good. The ceviche trio was interesting, but very skimpy for the price and tres leches was poor with very little sauce. However, our entrees were excellent as were the little rolls! Suave mojito was much better than the traditional."

All menu items at Lavagna are prepared from scratch, including our pasta. The menu changes weekly as well as seasonally so it can feature only the freshest local ingredients. Lavagna is expanding the house-made charcuterie program and is adding a line of house-made local preserves, with offerings varying week to week. Lavagna also offers a variety of Italian wines, beers from around the world and distinctive craft cocktails.
