Buon Appetito

L'Ardente nails Italian classics

If a trip to Italy isn’t in the cards, L’Ardente may satisfy your cravings. Chef David Deshaies and restaurateur Eric Eden opened the new hot spot in DC’s Capitol Crossing last fall. Washington-based HapstakDemetriou+ designed its sleek interiors, featuring Murano glass chandeliers  and, in the bar, a sculptural light installation by Graham Caldwell. The menu tempts guests with  wood-fired pizza, an espresso martini and bucatini. 200 Massachusetts Avenue, NW; 202-448-0450. lardente.com
