Anywayz, with that said, it's gotta be known, that I'm pretty sure I'm in lurrvveee. No, not "love," lurve. It's way more serious. He's just my type - fun, stylish... and Italian. His name is Dino.
Through the magic of Restaurant Week, I got the girls together for a night out in Cleveland Park. Upon some investigation on Dino's website, we found out they are BYOB and have free corkage Mon-Wed! We grabbed some bottles from a couple doors down and made our way.
Holy menu - this was lurve at first sight. Not only did they offer their entire menu for RW, but I also had the option to order 2 apps and an entree instead of getting dessert. So many decisions to make... when you see things on a menu like pork belly, bufala cheese, duck fat and whole fish, it makes the swooning that much more intense.
Overall, we all ordered a lot of different things and every.single.thing. was amazing. There menu changes occassionally but I would definitely recommend any of their fish dishes (all local), brussel sprouts and any of their homemade pastas.

|Whole fish - yes, I ate the eyeballs. LOLZ|
|Brussel sprouts pan roasted with pork belly. Just like how I like my veggies|
