Latin Affair

Seven Reasons transports guests with flavors from the Caribbean and Amazon

Venezuela-born chef Enrique Limardo opened DC’s Seven Reasons in April to rave reviews. The former chef at Baltimore’s Alma Cocina Latina has created a menu of small, medium and large plates—including octopus with black lentils and aji amarillo sauce. Miami designer Valentina Story furnished the brick-lined interiors with furniture from Turkey and lighting from Greece. The bar serves island-inspired libations such as the Tranquilo y Tropical. 2208 14th Street, NW; 202-290-2630. sevenreasonsdc.com
