(The chef’s table at Ristorante Tosca.)
As a resident of the nation’s capital, I’m endlessly fascinated by the unique culture of the place, especially in such relatively minor manifestations as the restaurant du jour among the power elite. Restaurant Nora, which serves only animals that had a good life and died happy, was The Place To Dine and Be Seen during the Clinton administration. Cholesterol palaces that specialize in 24-ounce and larger slabs of red meat dominated during the Bush years. And now the power place to dine seems to be Ristorante Tosca. Read all about it in a nice piece by Manuel Roig-Franzia in today’s Post.
