Range - new Bryan Voltaggio place in Chevy Chase

Video here:

I live nearby so and I've been to Volt, so I have high hopes, though I have to admit that it sort of sounds like "all trends to all people." Snout-to-tail, salumeria, raw bar, wood-burning oven, etc. Curated retail store in partnership with Williams & Sonoma. At the moment, the decor looks sterile & bland. Nonetheless, can't wait to try it.

  1. That's pretty much how I feel.

    1. I agree. Like there was a roomful of people and not one single idea was left on the table. I guess that's what happens when your given an unlimited budget. Sure sounds like an over-priced, under-produced, food court.

      1. It looks like the menu is way too big for everything to be excellent. I haven't been to VOLT but have been to Family Meal and loved it, but the menu isn't huge. Seems like this could be mediocre - I hope it's not, but even given the location it'll be packed. That area needs restaurants.

        1. Kimchee and pumpernickel pasta. I sure hope they meant two separate things! Kimchee. Pumpernickel pasta. And not a pasta made from kimchee and pumpernickel.

          Jeserf - did you find a website or a menu?

            I thought somewhere there was a pic captioned "kimchee pasta" so maybe they mean kimchee pasta and pumpernickel pasta? I would actually like to at least taste those.

              Menu is here:

              It is two different pastas. Both sound good to me...

                Looks good to me, too. Bryan is a great chef.

            2. On a menu that big, it surely wouldn't kill them to include ONE vegetarian main dish. (I guess technically a cheese pizza counts, but come on.)
