A timeless Italian culinary experience for this moment.
Glittering chandeliers float below wooden farm beams. Wisps of fragrant smoke linger inside a gold-plated pizza oven. Sumptuous fabrics meet impeccable ingredients.
This is L’Ardente, the latest hospitality venture from the award-winning team behind Unconventional Diner. The restaurant reflects the glorious contrasts of Italy itself: haute yet simple; glam yet rustic; indulgent yet restrained. Above all, it’s a destination DC deserves right now, a Mediterranean balm in the heart of the capital.
L’Ardente offers private and semi-private dining in a variety of spaces and service styles, including full restaurant buyouts and lunches. For parties up to eight guests, please visit our RESY page to check availability. For bookings of nine or more, please click below to fill out our events form.
