It is 2014 and we have just celebrated 25 years at the helm of the DC restaurant scene! My 18 years in the Tuscan countryside fueled the passion, authenticity and the magic for i Ricchi that has earned us accolades and awards such as the Hottest Restaurant in Washington and One of the Best Italian Restaurants in the World. In an age of constant change and innovation, we deliver what people expect of an Italian dining experience: comforting, authentic, quality food. With a wine list that is 100% from Italian wineries, a wood-burning hearth that produces the signature taste of the Tuscan grill, and our updated twists on classic recipes, you will leave with an appreciation for the rustic country food of Italy. From the food, to the frescos on the walls, the original terracotta floors and antique olive oil urns, we want to transport you to Tuscany even if just for a little while.
On Tuesday, October 7, from 12:30-2:00 PM, I hope you can join us for lunch with Peter Greenlaw, author, TV host and nutrition expert. He will discuss the T.D.O.S. Syndrome, (Toxicity, Deficiency, Obesity and Stress) and the practical steps we can take to combat these destructive forces that are aging us, sucking our energy, and ushering in unwelcome pounds. Read more about Peter here.
Tuesday, September 23, 2014, 5:30 – 7:30 PM, $36 per person.
Become a chocolatier for an evening! We’re making chocolates with Zoe Tsoukatos, a 3rd generation chocolatier and owner of Zoe’s Chocolate Company.
