La Forchetta, Coming to 3201 New Mexico Avenue, NW, hires Chef Roberto Donna

In late Jan. 2012 a reader told us that La Forchetta, formerly Al Forno Pizza coming to 3201 New Mexico Avenue, NW near American University hoped to open in March. More details about the space were revealed yesterday.

The Washington Post reports:

Hakan Ilhan, the owner of the local Pizza Autentica chain, has signed a one-year contract with the James Beard Award-winning Italian chef to head up the kitchen of a 116-seat restaurant called La Forchetta (formerly Balducci’s) at 3201 New Mexico Ave. NW. The restaurant, which will feature a wood-burning pizza oven and two open kitchens, is expected to serve fresh fish and house-made pasta and sausage – “Italian country, family-style,” says Donna — as early as the end of March.
