Ideal for pre-theatre dining, this small, intimate Italian restaurant is located in the Foggy Bottom district, just a seven-minute walk from the Kennedy Center. Translating to “White Nights,” Notti Bianche has a 42-seat dining room with French doors, simple wooden furniture, and dim lighting, as well as an adjacent outdoor patio. The menu, created by executive chef Robert DeCoste, includes authentic Italian specialties like hand-cut pappardelle Bolognese with herbed ricotta and spring mushroom risotto with white truffle oil. The restaurant also has a well-priced wine list and a pre-theatre prix fixe menu, available from 5 to 7 p.m.
