Arancini ---is it on any Italian menus in the area?

Looking to try Arancini. Does anyone know of an italian restaurant that has them on the menu?

  1. 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.

    2. 2 Amys always has suppli (similar to arancini) on their menu.

      1. 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.

        1. 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.

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

            1. 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.

              2. 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.

                1. 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.
