Foggy Bottom’s newly renovated Arc the Hotel is about to unveil its modern American restaurant called Notti 824, bringing the Northwest neighborhood a California-heavy wine list alongside tapas and meaty mains.
The 49-seat eatery (824 New Hampshire Avenue NW), located steps from the Kennedy Center, is scheduled to roll out breakfast and dinner service on Monday, November 5. The restaurant, complete with a landscaped courtyard for al fresco dining, features wooden table tops and stone accents. Interior pictures are not yet available.
Offerings include a broccolini-topped chicken flatbread starter; a braised short ribs entree with roasted wild mushrooms and oven-roasted cauliflower; and a range of vegan and gluten-free options. Lunch will join the mix at a later date.
The wine list is largely filled out by West Coast reds and whites, starting at $8 by the glass and $33 by the bottle, with labels like Silver Oak, Ecco Domani and Coppola Winery.
Cocktails ($13 to $15) include a “Sombra Mezcal” (pineapple juice, agave nectar, lime juice, egg white and bitters) and “Sapphiretini” (Bombay Sapphire gin, peach schnapps, blue curacao and lemon), along with classics like a Moscow mule, spicy margarita, and Old Fashioned. A local beer list includes pours from Port City Brewing Company.
Notti 824 is one piece of Westmont Hospitality Group’s top-to-bottom renovation of the former University Inn hotel. Tech-savvy additions to its 136 guest rooms include entry via mobile devices and the ability to stream shows on its 55-inch televisions.
