Though it’s located a bit off the beaten path on Rhode Island Avenue, this Woodridge newcomer is worth the trip for its interior alone. Nido (which means "nest" in Italian and Spanish) has the kind of precious décor that looks like it was ripped straight out of Pinterest. The food doesn’t disappoint either: Executive chef Aaron Wright prepares Mediterranean-inspired dishes like grilled octopus over gigante beans, and makes as much as possible in-house, including whole-milk ricotta and harissa.
