1099 New York Avenue, NW

Last month we learned that Casa Luca Italian restaurant from Chef Fabio Trabocchi would be taking over the former Againn Space at 1099 New York Avenue, NW (entrance on 11th Street.) A recent liquor license posted out front says:

“New Italian restaurant featuring traditional and updated cooking from the Marache region of Italy. Live entertainment and dancing for brunch and special events only. Inside seating capacity is 132, total load is 168. Sidewalk Café with seating for 40 patrons.”

Last month we learned the menu would feature:

· Montefeltro Flatbread “Crescia” with Broccoli Rabe
· “Chichirichì di Offida” Stuffed with Onions and Roasted Peppers
· Mussels Alicia with Tomato “Marinara”
· San Leo Ravioli of Greens, Parmigiano, Lemon Zest and Fresh Herbs
· Scrippelle ’Mbusse Crepes of Pecorino, Truffles, and Hen Consomme
· Monkfish with Baby Artichokes, Scallions and Dill “Porchetta” style
· Giuseppe “Braciole” Pork Chop with Zolfino Beans “Cacciatora” style
· Salami al Cioccolato Marchigiano in small and large sizes to share

Updates as the build-out progresses.
