I think all of my friends know how much I adore Fiola and although I’ve been to Casa Luca once, (you can read about that excursion here) it’s on my list for more family style dining when I get the time to make it over there.
When I heard that Fabio Trabocchi was planning on taking on another restaurant at the Georgetown waterfront, I knew that it would be one of a handful of places that would lure me to that part of town. The other place that I greatly enjoy is Capella Georgetown (I really should jot down my notes on another posting!).
I’ve been fortunate to have gone to Fiola Mare twice now, once for dinner with friends and this past Sunday for brunch for a family celebration.
Everything (as usual) was delicious and everyone (as usual) was welcoming. Can’t wait to make this a part of my usual stops. Thank you Maria and Fabio for being such delightful hosts.
My oyster and caviar appetizer. A fun way to eat these 2 ingredients together. I had been watching “Match Point” and Emily Mortimer’s character orders caviar while out dining in a scene and having caviar was stuck in my head.
I’ve always enjoyed the San Francisco dish, cioppino and this Sicilian fisherman’s stew was very flavorful. I’m one of the crazies who like to eat the shrimp heads and after years of “hiding”, I’ve learned to eat them with a fork and knife without anyone noticing. I get why people would be a little affected by it – LOL
The waterfront atmosphere isn’t overly crowded and the indoor window seating allows diners to feel like they’re outside without braving the elements. I can see Fiola Mare having a great Summer season!
