Artusi is the celebrated bar next door to its notable, Northern Italian sibling restaurant, Spinasse.
Chef Stuart Lane brings his passion for the dishes found throughout Italy, including his notable handmade pasta, to the casual menu. It is the perfect stop on Capitol Hill for an expertly crafted classic or modern Italian-inspired cocktail, snacks or dinner.
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.
