Best red wine braised short rib ravioli in Washington DC

My wife and I were big fans of Maestro restaurant at the Ritz Carlton in McLean,VA (also known as Tysons Corner to the DC area locals).

In August 2007, Fabio Trabocchi – the executive chef at Maestro – decided to move to New York where he opened Fiamma restaurant.  Sadly, in early 2009 Fiamma closed.  Reason:  worsening economy.  In late 2008 / early 2009 some restaurants in NYC reported 30-40% decline in business.

There is a new restaurant in Tysons Corner called Inox. The lunch menu can be found at http://www.inoxrestaurant.com/lunch_prix_fixe.html.

I think Inox is one of the best restaurants in the Washington DC metropolitan area.  The food is exceptional but one dish truly excels.

Red wine braised short rib ravioli with wild mushrooms, roasted shallots, and butternut squash has very few equals.   Try to create time for prix-fixe lunch and order this dish.  Do not forget to sample Inox’ olive bread.

My next ‘the lighter side’ blog post will focus on dining options in Vienna, Austria, one of my favorite cities.
