The Restaurant

Rated #1 Best New Restaurant!!

Osteria Elisir is the latest incarnation of Chef Enzo Fargione’s approach to dining in the
“Countryside of  Italy”
featuring the chef’s distinctive hands-on approach, personalized vision and interpretation of his acclaimed modern Italian cooking that earned him the 2008 Esquire Magazine:

“One of the best 4 chefs to watch in the USA”

Osteria Elisir offers unique and creative menus nightly highlighting Fargione’s creativity and constant search for taste, presentation and concept. The menu changes seasonally.

Located in the heart of Washington DC Penn Quarter Elisir is conveniently located at 427 11th street NW Washington, DC (between Pennsylvania Ave & E Street)

The design and decor is the fruit of collaboration with the renowned architectural firm Grupo 7 that created a first class restaurant with stylish contemporary, but elegant décor and with typical European flares. The Countryside decor adds comfort, warmth and a restaurant you can dine at with family, daily…but elegant enough for power meals and date night.

Osteria Elisir accommodates approximately 85 patrons in the dining area, 35 patrons at a bar, and 35 in its glass enclosed private room. The Restaurant showcases 3 glass fronted wine cellars, fine wood millwork, porcelain tile and carpet floors, pendant lighting and custom metal details…wine barrels, farming tools and charming country displays!

The partially open kitchen features a plating station and an observation deck, which monitors the work of Chef Fargione and feeds to nearby LCD monitors

The Restaurant is open 5 days a week for lunch and 6 days a week for dinner service. The wine list features extensive selections from Italy, California, South Africa and a few French and Virginia labels. A multiple wine pairing program is also available to accommodate any dinner menu selection.
