Save Room for Tiramisu at L’Ardente, a New Italian Eatery in DCNovember 29, 2021 –
Craving a Sunday supper, Italian style? Head to the newly opened L’Ardente restaurant on Massachusetts Avenue. This quintessential Italian restaurant serves dinner every night of the week with a glam yet rustic vibe that is perfect for any occasion. The only tough part is deciding what to order from their extensive menu of Italian favorites.
To start, grab an order of focaccia with cannellini schmear for the table, accompanied by a variety of their antipasti options. Favorite antipasti spreads start with a panzanella de funghi with oyster mushrooms and a hazelnut vinaigrette, the gamberi alla griglia with black garlic and pomegranate molasses, and the salsiccia della casa with peppers and onions. Then, choose between an entree like their famous 40 layer lasagna or a personal-sized wood-fired Margherita pizza. Either option will leave you totally satisfied. You can also choose the “Per La Tavola” entrees like the whole grilled branzino or 32-ounce dry-aged steak to share.
Whatever you do, save room for the tiramisu flambe for dessert! It's perfectly sweet ending to a magnificently indulgent meal.
