New Italian restaurant to find home downtown

From the folks that brought you Zola, Red Sage, and Indigo Landing, Star Restaurant Group will be opening a new Italian Restaurant on 15th and H St. NW. Complete with its own bakery, which will be making fresh pasta, breads and desserts, the yet to be named restaurant will offer a spectacular view of the Washington Monument and the Treasury building.

The menu, guided by Executive Chef Bryan Moscatello, will feature such dishes as Tuscan bean soup with proscuitto, tomato oil and purple basil, and a rotisserie of guinea hen with apples, chestnuts, figs and Ciabatta croutons.

Personally, I'm very excited about this. One of 2003's Best New Chefs in America according to Food and Wine Magazine, Chef Moscatello is a great talent, and I'm sure that his talent is going to result in a fantastic restaurant.
