This restaurant is located in renovated (rebuilt, really) historic space east of Downtown in a gentrified, older neighborhood on the south side of Capitol Hill. If you are staying Downtown, this place is well worth the short Uber rides over and back. The menu is...More

Love the space in Chophouse Row. We went on Monday Night and found out they have Happy Hour from 5pm-close. We had the cashews, fried cauliflower and the lasagna. The cashews were toasted and seasoned with rosemary, cayenne and sea salt and were definitely addictive....More

We had dinner here with friends on a Thursday night. The decor is inviting (once you walk in off of the street and out of the entrance) and the food was excellent. We were there during Herring Week and had a very good smoked herring...More

In Italy, the osteria is an inviting neighborhood spot where locals savor fresh, seasonal food while enjoying the company of good friends. Renowned for its Northern Italian cuisine, la Spiga is authentic enough in both food and ambience to make you feel a wave of nostalgia, even if you've never been to Emilia-Romagna. Chef and co-founder Sabrina Tinsley crafts the Romagnola cuisine to make it genuine, yet hers alone. Using the very finest ingredients, menus are changed seasonally to reflect what is freshest in local markets. As co-founder and host Pietro Borghesi says, "An evening at la Spiga is like dining in Italy - without the plane fare."
