Mari Vanna

1141 Connecticut Avenue, NW, 202.783.7777

Mari Vanna, owned by a Russian-based restaurant company, has opened its 6th location in Dupont circle.  The spacious Russian eatery spans three floors based around the concept of “the higher you go, the more elaborate the experience”, according to its spokeswoman.  On the first floor, guests can enjoy an open kitchen and bar, on the second: a more elegant dining area, and on the third: an exclusive cocktail lounge that is a first for the company.  The décor and menu is proclaimed to be “baubushka chic”. The space is meant to be reminiscent of grandmother’s house in both its home cooked flavors and welcoming atmosphere.  Mari Vanna is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a late-night menu until 2:00am.
