Retrobottega has recently opened up in the former Rosario space. Two of the three partners behind Al Volo have spearheaded the new culinary venture. This new, Italian, Adams-Morgan concept is focusing on small plates- think Italian tapas. Retrobottega is serving up an expansive menu that offers an array of dishes ranging from fried calamari and polenta to halibut crudo. For their drink menu, this new restaurant is stirring up cocktails like the CaraMia, made with egg white, amaro, gin, lime, and coffee beans.
