At Centrolina restaurant and market in City Center DC, Chef and Owner Amy Brandwein shows Washingtonians the versatility, grace, and overall delicacy of Italian cuisine. 

The three-time James Beard Foundation Award nominee believes food should taste as good as in Italy, plated with pose, and viewed through the seasonal lens of the MidAtlantic—tenets she instills in her new fast-casual project, Piccolina, an osteria opening across the alley from Centrolina in July 2019.  

“I take Italian food and keep it in its raw state but elevate it presentation-wise without complicating it or losing flavor,” Brandwein explains. “There is something inherently captivating about Italian flavors with an artistic and modern edge, while still being fresh and natural.”
