Artusi is the celebrated, casual bar next door to its notable, Northern Italian sibling restaurant, Spinasse. It is the perfect stop on Capitol Hill for an expertly crafted cocktail and a snack.
Join us nightly for happy hour, evening cocktails or a light bite.
“It is true that man does not live by bread alone; he must eat something with it. And the art of making this something as economical, savory and healthy as possible is, I insist, a true art.”
In 1891, Pellegrino Artusi published the landmark La Scienza in cucina e l’arte di mangiare bene (The Science of Cooking and the Art of Eating Well). Written as a cookbook for middle-class families, Artusi used intuitive and humorous insight into manners, nutrition and culinary technique to create a national cuisine, collecting recipes from all over Italy.
