What do you do when you’ve just opened your second restaurant? If you’re James Beard Award-winning chef Fabio Trabocchi and his wife, Maria, you open a third. Fiola Mare, an homage to the fish and seafood of the Mediterranean and Adriatic, opened at Georgetown’s Washington Harbour in late February. It joins tony Fiola and more casual Casa Luca in the Trabocchi’s nascent conglomerate.

Christian Graves is a micro manager.

When the tall, bearded chef places his double-cut pork chop on the table before me and my husband, Greg, the plate is as brown as the distressed wood tabletop. Golden-crusted hush puppies the size of pingpong balls nudge the edges of the crisp-seared chop, itself several shades of umber. The plate swims in a puddle of blond pork jus that laps the edges of creamy buff-hued corn grits. And topping the chop are warm, tawny sultanas that will burst with winey sweetness at every chew.

A few blocks outside of the traffic circle in Old Towne Orange stands a former breakfast joint that’s been completely renovated into a hip, cool eatery. The exterior still holds the same charm, but step inside, and there’s no mistaking you’re someplace different. It’s called Ways & Means—it was modeled after a traditional oyster house, and for shellfish-lovers, it’s paradise. Here, you’ll find sustainably caught seafood accompanied by seasonal ingredients.
