    Just noticed in another post that it's served at the new Locanda on Capitol Hill.

      I've tried the arancini at Locanda - it's got small, fresh pieces of yellow squash. Nicely fried, not too greasy. I believe there were three golf-ball sized pieces to an order.

        I've been racking my brain because I knew I had seen it on a few menus lately and then I checked out the PS7 lounge menu. I haven't tried it there before but it sounds really good. Nice excuse to check out a really good restaurant.

          Been watching Montalbano? Some Italian restaurant should do a meal based on Montalbano stories.

          The suppli at Two Amy's mentioned below are all I've had in the area. They are a bit heavier than they should be, but they are a reasonable facilime.

            Lia's in Friendship Heights often has it on the menu. I often find that a salad and appetizer there makes a perfect meal.

              Filomena Ristorante in Georgetown at 1063 Wisconsin Ave NW has fantastic arancini stuffed with mozzarella and a little bit of meat.

                Just had the arancini at Filomena's Sunday night. It was quite good!! Too bad I can't say the same about the mushroom ravioli.

                Luciano's in Halethorpe (just south of Baltimore) had it on their specials menu the other day.

                I've also had them at Obelisk. I think it was like an amuse bouche.

                  Lia's in Friendship Heights has them, and does them rather well; Cleveland Park Bar and Grill (which, IMHO, has decent pizza as well) also makes them, although not excessively well.
