Phew. It's hard to juggle household tasks, clients, a full DVR, family and … flaming torches. OK, maybe not all at once.
But we ARE big on multi-tasking. And so is new Italian eatery Potenza (1430 H St. N.W.), which opens today. The spot is a yummy combination of trattoria, bakery and wine shop -- yep, sugar, carbs and booze; who's complaining here? Not a soul.
The bakery churns out breads and desserts, but what's turning our heads is the fresh pasta made daily. And, um, did we mention the salumi counter? Um, yeah, there's a salumi counter. Which is way better than any hypothetical salami counter, by the way -- salumi is the term for ALL Italian pork-based deli meats (yay), including prosciutto, pepperoni, ham and sopressata. Drool drool. (Excuse us for one sec, we just quit vegetarianism for good.)
More important phrases: Raw bar. Three-ton pizza oven. Two blocks from the White House. Just go eat already. And bring us back some salami, will you?
