The sleek Italian getaway stands out in contrast to the wholesale purveyors surrounding it on the outskirts of the Union Market district. Inspired by the coastal cooking found in the Puglia region in the heel of Italy’s boot, the Michelin-starred restaurant is one of D.C.’s top tables for special occasion dinners. The prix fixe menu comes with a four-course minimum ($98). The linguine with spicy XO sauce, peperoncino, and bread crumb is not to be missed.

⭐ | With its chic and seamless blend of indoor and outdoor space, Masseria is a clear departure from its simpler surrounds. The classic former warehouse—complete with the requisite exposed ducts, concrete floors and brick walls—has been glammed up with a stainless steel exhibition kitchen, chrome and leather furnishings, pendant lights suspended from nautical rope and an impressive glass-encased wine cellar. It’s all very relaxed, albeit in a well-dressed way, and the feel-good vibe extends to the staff, who clearly like working here as much as diners enjoy lingering over the multicourse meals. Chef/owner Nicholas Stefanelli's Puglian heritage comes through in the menu, which features four or five courses, along with a nightly tasting. The kitchen hits all the right notes balancing trendy and serious. Begin with a cigar box filled with focaccia so sinfully delicious, you’ll be tempted to scarf it all down—but don’t. You’ll want to save room for the spicy fish stew, a thing of beauty practically brimming with tripe and lobster, or house-made maccheroni with a thick and gamey goat ragù. Even dessert strays far from the pack, showcasing beet ice cream instead of the classic tiramisu.
