There are three new reasons to give Bryan Voltaggio's Aggio restaurant a try. The deals are available at both the D.C. and Baltimore locations.
First up: Sunday Suppers. In the Italian tradition, guests who attend will be able to try family-style Italian dishes (they're prepared for about 3-4 people to share. The dishes will be individually priced, and they're available 4-9 p.m.
Aggio is also launching its own happy hour from Tuesday-Friday, 5-7 p.m. Deals include $5-$6 vodka and bourbon cocktails, $7 wines, $4 Peronis and $9 pasta dishes.
Finally, the restaurant will offer a regional tasting menu series. Each menu will focus on a different region (first up is Piemonte, in honor of truffle season). It's $95 for six courses (wine pairings are $65). The full menu:
