Boston-based chef Michael Schlow's Glover Park reasaurant is his fifth in the city. The menu, executed by chef Philippe Reininger, features seafood-centric fare from the Puglia region of Italy. There are also good pizzas and pastas available, as well as a number of meat-based entrees.

"… Casolare is Schlow’s fifth Washington restaurant…. The name in English means cottage or farmhouse, a notion conveyed in the front bar, its ceiling decked out in oak, and the dining room, where cozy green and blue booths hug the walls. … Patrons reach the restaurant via the lobby of the hotel…. Italy is celebrated for its restraint in the kitchen: If you start with quality ingredients, you don’t need to do much to them. The sentiment infuses the menu, a collection of antipasti, pastas, a few pizzas and 10 main dishes, half of them featuring fish or seafood. Having worked some magic for Schlow early on at Riggsby, the retro supper club, Philippe Reininger is reprising his role as executive chef here. …" See Full Review…»

"Restauratuer Michael Schlow adds to Glover Park’s culinary game with Casolare, a 156-seat coastal Italian restaurant opening Monday in the recently revamped Kimpton hotel. This is the fifth DC eatery for the Boston-based chef, who began his Washington expansion with Tico, and most recently debuted fellow Italian ventures Alta Strada and Conosci in Mt. Vernon Triangle. Chef Philippe Reininger, formerly of sister restaurant the Riggsby, has swapped kitchens to execute Casolare’s seafood-centric fare. …" See Full Review…»

Old Europe's Bavarian atmosphere and occasionally brusque staff are essentially unchanged since the restaurant opened in 1976. It’s a bit expensive and can feel a little stuffy to some, but it’s the area's finest for good, authentic German cooking.

This rapidly-expanding local chain with locations in the DC area, New York, Philadelphia, and Boston, offers healthy, good-quality salads. With its emphasis on fresh, local ingredients and calories posted on the menu, it's one of our picks for healthy "cheap eats."

The last word from Washingtonian is this badly outdated review of the original Georgetown location. The chain has expanded up the East Coast and hosts a yearly music festival. But it still follows the same basic format: salads and yogurt, featuring local ingredients and numerous toppings. See Full Review…»

As the name suggests, this surf-casual restaurant evokes the surfside beach shacks of Texas, Mexico and the Caribbean.
