Acqua Al 2 on the Hill and it is a lovely, charming italian place. We had a great meal there a couple weeks ago with Alex and Brittany. It is one of those restaurants I have always heard about and never got to, and now I am hoping it will be in our regular routine when we are craving italian.
Fainting Goat. We have been meaning to check it out for a couple months now and finally got the chance earlier this week with friends. It was fantastic. The reviews have been luke-warm and so we were cautiously optimistic and it was great. It is right on U street between 13th and 14th and the front of it is small but when you walk in it opens up and is actually a great space. The food was spot on, atmostphere was really nice, location is great and service was solid. All in, a good spot!
