The Best Italian Restaurants in DC Right Now
Hidden in the rows of wholesale stores surrounding Union Market, you might miss Masseria if you don’t know what you’re looking for. Inside the wooden gate, the warehouse vibe gives way to a stylish courtyard, which leads to an industrial-chic-covered patio and dining room. Both the decor and the menu are inspired by chef Nicholas Stefanelli’s fond memories of Puglia’s idyllic landscapes and welcoming country houses. The tasting menu is the only way to play with six- and eight-course options from $162 to $215 per person. The dishes are modern and artistic takes on classics, and this fall there is a new truffle and game menu.
