Washingtonian has released its top 20 restaurants on its list of the city's 100 Very Best Restaurants, and Fiola Mare is ranked number one.
Fabio Trabocchi's waterfront restaurant outpaced such notable restaurants as Little Serow, Komi and The Inn at Little Washington, which all made the top ten (The Inn's ranking at 8 jumped from last year, when it was ranked controversially at 22).
Several newcomers made the top 20, including Convivial (4), Bad Saint (7), Masseria (12), Garrison (13) and Maketto (16). But some old-school restaurants also received high rankings, like Bistro Bis on Capitol Hill (18). Absent from the top 20: D.C. darling Rose's Luxury.
The full list is not yet online, but is on newsstands.

1. Fiola Mare
3. Little Serow
