Azur in DC was designed by Natascha Folens of NF Interiors.

On the Forefront

The good life in food and fashion

On the Forefront FRUITS OF THE SEA
In Azur, chef Frederik De Pue pays homage to seafood, from classic to contemporary. The four-level space was designed by Virginia-based Natascha Folens of NF Interiors. Handcrafted furniture, a custom “bubble” chandelier and walls decorated with captains’ mirrors offer a twist on the nautical look. 405 8th Street, NW; 202-347-7491. azurdc.com

A CLASSIC REBORN
Edgar Bar & Kitchen brings a modern update to DC’s iconic Mayflower Hotel. Designed by New York-based AvroKo, the space salutes the hotel’s past with dark wood and leather upholstery. The brasserie menu serves up mini-Maryland crab cakes with smoked paprika sauce. 1127 Connecticut Avenue, NW; 202-347-2233. edgarbarandkitchen.com

RUSTIC AND REFINED
Peruvian chef Victor Albisu has opened Del Campo, a 174-seat restaurant specializing in expertly grilled meats as well as traditional Latin American street foods. Designed by Georgetown-based CORE, the Chinatown spot features a warm palette of woods and neutral concrete walls as well as vintage crystal chandeliers. 777 I Street, NW; 202-289-7377. delcampodc.com 

IN THE SWIM
Gottex’s Electric Print Bandeau, shown with matching silk pareo, captures a summery attitude with crisp, geometric style. The one-piece comes with removable shoulder straps. Available at Bloomingdales. Bandeau, $178; pareo, $198. bloomingdales.com

SINUOUS STYLE
Bulgari’s Serpenti collection celebrates the sensual form of the snake. It includes 18-carat pink-gold earrings with rubellite and pave diamonds ($13,500) and a matching necklace ($78,000). bulgari.com
