New Italian restaurant/bocce bar Vendetta is opening to the public tonight, serving walk-ins only. This afternoon, the restaurant will begin taking phone reservations for tomorrow and beyond. Diners can also now make reservations for dinner at Vendetta on Open Table.
Located in the former Red Palace space, Vendetta's menu includes plenty of pasta dishes, from meatball & turnip ragu to walnut kale pesto. In case the menu doesn't drive home the Italian theme, there are Vespas suspended from the ceiling, The Hill is Home reports, as well as two indoor bocce courts and "grotto" outdoor seating. Status: Opening tonight. 1212 H St. NE; website. — Adele Chapin
