5 Must-Try Old-World Italian Dishes at Rialto

5 Must-Try Old-World Italian Dishes at Rialto

 

According to the National Restaurant Association, the 980,000 restaurant locations around the nation bring in around $1.8 billion collectively on a typical day. We are a country of people who love to dine out. We have options on every street corner, and often our selection of where to go and what to eat is dictated merely by repeating habits. Next time, rather than sticking with the same old boring restaurant and dishes, consider trying something new, such as Rialto, where you will find Old World Italian dishes with a contemporary flair thrown into the mix!

“It’s fun and interesting to try new places and dishes,” explains Ryan Fichter, the executive chef at Rialto, a new Italian restaurant in Georgetown. “We have created some great dishes that will provide a culinary vacation for your taste buds. They are must-tries for anyone who considers themselves a foodie or just loves Italian cuisine.”

Here are 5 must-try dishes at the new Rialto restaurant:

If you’ve ever been down M street in Georgetown, chances are you’ve seen the iconic sign of the British Foot Guard hanging at The Guards restaurant, which recently closed its doors after 62 years in business. The historic building, located at 2915 M Street NW, will now be home to Rialto, a new authentic Italian restaurant opening on September 26th. After several offers to purchase the landmark sign, Rialto’s owners, Ben Kirane, and Moe and Joe Idrissi, have decided to auction it off on eBay so that locals will have the chance to own a piece of restaurant history: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=261290563776.
