Having lived in Usaquen 10 years ago and moved out to Sopo, this neighbourhood has become one of my favourites when I come to town.
The Amarti has extended it's restaurant and what was once a somewhat dark but charming space has been amplified in the rear into a total change of theme. Tastefully modern cafe style with plenty of light. This part of the restaurant is accessed by way of the original entrance door which is infamous for causing more than a few headaches for unwary patrons. You'll have to go; to see what I mean!
I love the Tagliatteli Harry which is spicy with plenty of Italian sausage. However today for lunch I had a hankering for a good steak. The menu is very extensive as is their wine list.
The Classic Black Pepper Steak with red wine sauce (Rare) was served with roast potatoes and I ordered the Caesar Salad and strawberry juice to accompany the meal.
Everything was absolutely delicious. Service was swift, attentive and polite.
After such a sumptuous feast, unfortunately there was no room for a sweet but I know from past experience in the other side of the restaurant, that their dessert selection is bar none. Just forget calorie counting and try the Passion Fruit Cheesecake, home-made Pecan Pie or anything else that your heart desires. Perhaps not your heart...Cholesterol !
Next time I'm going for Osso Bucco.
