A business dinner for 6 at Tosca in Washington, D.C. was expensive, but well worth it.
For appetizers, we shared a couple of orders of Prosciutto di Palma and Polipetti e Calamari. Both were excellent.
A couple of our guest tried the Zuppa (a black-eyed pea soup which they said was delicious) while the others tried the Insalata Mista (a very good dinner salad).
For entrees, members of our dinner party (including me) had the Costolette di Vitello. It was the best veal chop I have ever had. Others tried the Branzino Spagnolo, a unique spanish sea bass - and Filetto di Maiale, a beautifully presented pork tenderloin. All received rave reviews.
We shared a side of grilled asparagus which was delicious and perfectly prepared.
Two of us had eaten at Tosca before and had told our guests that they were going to really enjoy the Fettuccini Bolognese. Unfortunately, they were not serving it the night we visited, but our waiter quickly suggested we try the fettuccini with roasted leg of wild boar ragu as an alternative - on-the-house. It was extraordinary. Who knew leg of wild boar tasted so good!
The service was precise and professional. Unfortunately, the restaurant was completely booked for the evening so that we could feel the waiter's hints of "move it along" as we approached 2 hours.
Tosca is not an inexpensive dinner - but you'll remember the incredible food and service long after you forget how much it cost.
