This swanky Italian restaurant and Mediterranean wine bar occupies an intimate underground space at Dupont Circle's Palomar Hotel. Designed by the Bay Area's Puccini Group, Urbana is dimly lit and sleekly decorated in rich dark woods and hues of brown and hunter green. Chef Bollinger's menu incorporates the rich culinary traditions of the Western Mediterranean into signature pastas, wood-oven pizzas, and seafood dishes making use of sustainable local ingredients. The wine bar, which is designed like a Tuscan wine cellar, offers 35 wines by the glass and 100 wines by the bottle, including many organic varieties.

Insider Tip:

Given its active bar scene, Urbana can get loud and may not be the best spot for a working business lunch (unless seated a considerable distance from the bar).
