5-Course Contemporary "Italian-Ish" Tasting Event
Just a little over a year old, this Italian eatery in the Capitol Hill neighborhood vaulted immediately onto Thrillist's 2021 "Best Restaurants in D.C." list. Executive Chef Katarina Petonito was recently nominated for Rising Star Chef of the Year by the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington (RAMW). A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, she began her career and cemented her love of Mediterranean cuisine and culture at two leading D.C. restaurants, Graffiato and Kapnos, and most recently cooked at the popular St. Anselm near Union Market. Here, at La Collina, she is turning out classic pasta dishes like cacio e pepe and lamb Bolognese, along with such staples as arancini, beef carpaccio, and chicken piccata. Indeed, the Washingtonian cited La Collina's meatballs on their list of "13 Favorite Fall Dishes." You'll also love the vibe, which is reminiscent of an Italian osteria, meaning lively, friendly, and fun. We're looking forward to our visit and to sampling Chef Petonito's deeply satisfying Italian dishes. Hope to see you there!
