The gist: This sleek Italian eatery in the Capitol Crossing development comes from Chef David Deshaies (also with Unconventional Diner). It’s a massive space with 180 seats, including 20 at an elevated island bar, where you can see and be seen.
The food: The most ordered dish on the menu is a lasagna that’s impossibly stacked. It’s 40-layers deep and might require two people to take down. Other early favorites at this wood-fired Italian joint include the bucatini alla carbonara and the Ocotrani pizza with pomodoro, smoked octopus, caciocavallo, plus cheese and basil.

The space itself is also indulgent with glossy terrazzo tile floors and golden Italian chandeliers.

Chef David Deshaies and restaurateur Eric Eden of Unconventional Diner recently unveiled their latest project, L’Ardente, at the new Capitol Crossing development. With this grand opening also comes a grand and gilded-styled dining room, plus an extremely Instagrammable dish—lasagna that’s impossibly stacked lasagna 40 layers high and might require two people to take down. Other early favorites at this wood-fired Italian joint include the bucatini alla carbonara and the Ocotrani pizza with pomodoro, smoked octopus, caciocavallo, plus cheese and basil. At 180 seats, including 20 at an elevated island bar, you’re likely to find a perch where you can dine in Italian style in this modern and posh setting.
