Elisir Restaurant is comint to 427 11th St, NW between E St and Pennsylvania Ave, NW (near E Street Cinema.) A recent liquor license application says:

New Restaurant. European flares specializing in the sale of fine Italian food with culinary classes from time to time. Live music or DJ for occasional private parties. Occupancy load is 117. Sidewalk Café 26 seats.

Not exactly sure what “European flares” are but I’m all for fine Italian food and sidewalk cafes so this sounds great.

  • “fine Italian food” = gourmet burgers, Comfort One shoes

    • OMIGAWD I HOPE SO!! DC definitely needs a restaurant with a gourmet burger concept. We don’t have ANY of those!

        also, where the hell can i get a chardonnay and a cupcake in this town?

    European flares are illegal in the United States. Someone should’ve told the new owners about this.

    • Agreed. European flares are dangerous, unregulated, and highly flammable. And that goes double for the pants.

    With the level of detail that has been given to the painting of Smada Deli Market, I’m sure Rick Smada is gonna be serving up some of the city’s best corned beef.

    I think European flares are kind of like Roman candles.

    This is the restaurant of former Teatro Goldoni chef Enzo Fargione. I loved his work at Teatro, so I’m pretty excited to try his new place.
