DUPONT: Tredici Enoteca at The St. Gregory Hotel opening Dec 12 - Definitely Worth the Visit

|Multi-level feature of the restaurant|
"The Tredici Enoteca at The St. Gregory Hotel is a Mediterranean wine bar and restaurant located within The St. Gregory Hotel in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington, DC. is somewhere that will gain immediate popularity, its easy to enjoy the space, which integrates the lobby and the restaurant into one, with an attractive bar that will fill, I'm sure, each evening. The renovations are just excellent and entering off of M Street its hard to see where the hotel starts and the restaurant begins.
I was fortunate to sit and chat with Executive Chef Carlos Aparicio, and try some of the menu items. The Israeli Couscous was light and flavorful, a perfect lunch or starter. The Gnocchi was about as 'fluffy' as you can get, a melt-in-your-mouth taste bomb that once started is difficult to stop eating.
The Bar has great ambience, with brass counter bar-lights, grey/green leather stools and plenty of seating around the perimeter.
Overall, my impression was 'somewhere I want to return to' . The menu looks great (I am a great fan of Mediterranean food) and well priced - this is a restaurant worth a visit."- Badwolfdc
