Zuppa Fresca: What’s Italian for Potential?

Zuppa Fresca, one of NoMa‘s latest restaurants, is tucked away in the ground floor of the Loree Grand luxury apartment building at 250 K Street NE. They serve modern Italian cuisine. It has some nice outdoor seating and a strangely configured dining room inside, featuring sharp black tablecloths. Fancy! There’s also a fully stocked bar where you can just hang and sip on a glass of your favorite chianti. The cantina song from Star Wars played overhead, which was certainly a first in my book.

My brocolini di pollo was delicious, however, the crab bruschetta left a little to be desired. The service is a bit slow, but I’m sure it’s just a case of getting things in order. We here at DC Style is Real hope Chef Alfio Celia can work out the kinks and give NoMa a great place to go for indulging  in rich, tasty Italian.  In a spot devoid of many other quality lunch options, a go-to place would be a boon to the growing near-H neighborhood.
