Happy find near Dupont Circle
Stuck in DC this past weekend due to cancelled flight. Had a very good meal at Urbana. it is connected to the Palomar Hotel. Kind of N. Italian/French. Duck fat fries were to die for. Very effecient and simpatico staff.
Urbana is good for what it is- a nice, albeit pricey, wine list and a nice atmosphere. Food is decent and a few things are great, but nothing is outstanding. Perfect for what you wanted and needed :)
This might all change fairly soon thought. From my understanding the chef at Urbana is leaving....so we'll see if the food follows. I myself have yet to eat there even though its within walking distance to my bf's apartment.
