La Tagliatella


Washington DC

Yes: La Tagliatella is a 130-location chain. But they're all in Europe, so it's cool! (Chains over there smoke and wear cool clothes and stuff.) Actually, the Clarendon location is their second in the US (#1 honors went to Atlanta), and endless soup & breadsticks are skipped in favor of endless Old World charm: chandeliers, several coats of arms, and other efforts to "mimic a Northern Italian home".
