Washington Place is an old mansion set in the bustling neighborhood of Little Italy. The menu offers some unusual choices which were wonderfully prepared and well-served. My vegetable tamales came wrapped in corn husks on a bed of basmati rice. Everything was flavorful and blended well together. My wife had the chicken and dumplings and enjoyed that as well. Service was prompt and friendly. Because the building is an old house, it is comprised of a series of small dining areas that make the experience very cozy. The kitchen is situated in one of these rooms and open to customers' view. As we left, members of the kitchen said goodbye and thanked us for coming. The Washington was a great experience from beginning to end.
