A Seasonal Summer Lunch at Graffiato in Penn Quarter

I had a great summer lunch the other day at Graffiato with Beth and Kim. It's a crazy week at work, so I'll present these photos, sans story, to whet your palate. Pop by and try out the Chef Mike Isabella flagship while these are still in season:
Watermelon Lemongrass Housemade Soda

Short Ribs with Citrus and Radish

Sweet Corn Agnolotti

The Papa Smurf Pizza: proscuitto, potato, caramelized onions and speck

Fettuccine with #TrueBlueMD crab, summer squash and zucchini
PS. One of my favorite things about Graffiato is it's use of seasonal ingredients. The menu is always sourced - even down to the farms listed on the chalkboard for patrons to peruse. That's how I learned that the crab in my fettuccine came from J.M. Clayton & Co, which was the crab house I visited in Cambridge, MD. So neat! (If you haven't already, check out my post about Clayton & Co and crabbing on the Choptank River.)

Graffiato is located at 707 6th Street NW in Washington, DC (near the Gallery Place metro stop.)
