Boston-based restaurateur Michael Schlow brought a taste of Italy to DC when he opened his third locale of Alta Strada. (The other two are in Connecticut and Massachusetts.) The District was all too happy to welcome classic dishes you’d swear were made in a cramped kitchen by a little old Italian grandmother. Think cavatelli with broccoli rabe, pancetta and rosemary as well as the restaurant’s best-selling dish: a rich bolognese sauce ladled over tagliatelle.
