A Beautiful Date Destination
Tuscan gold hues and glass artwork set a romantic scene at this spot, where elegant water features and wrought ironwork also catch the eye. Enjoy your meal by the one of several fireplaces, or, dine al fresco on the second-story balcony overlooking the C&O Canal. We recommend the agnolotti ai porcini -- a Taste of Georgetown winner that features hand-rolled fresh ravioli filled with porcini mushrooms and sprinkled with black truffle oil.

"From the cheery logo, you might think this is yet another slick Tex-Mex chain restaurant. You'd be wrong. The dining room is a warm space outfitted with Ecuadorian art, and the cooking could convince you an abuelita was working the stockpots." - Washingtonian
Menu faves at this spot include beef empanadas, ceviches mixto, and llapingachos -- fried rounds of mashed potatoes filled with cheese and avocado. But we say scarf down the churros, served with a nutella or dulce de leche filling or with a cup of Spanish hot chocolate.

A Meal to Remember
Start with a steaming bowl of Maryland crab soup full of lump crab meat, or sample starters like the smoked salmon deviled eggs or bacon and chive hush puppies. Then, move onto sea scallops with caramelized pears or a flat iron steak with bleu cheese cream sauce -- just a few of the choices on the upscale contemporary menu.
