THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Kuna Restaurant Review

: Despite its cramped quarters, tiny Kuna has an immense heart: its service is courteous; its menu, chic; its breads, outstanding; and the ambience, simply cool and funky. What else would you expect to find on U Street, where the beat of the street is laidback and no one bothers about high style? So, where to sit? Upstairs in its loft, tables may be squeezed close, but there’s a sense of intimacy as you mop up splashes of golden olive oil; devour the heavenly, olive-cured pickles; and await your meal. Starters include a unique risotto pancake with the rice grains held together by melted fresh mozzarella, but a less calorie-laden beginning would be the winey steamed plump mussels. EntrĂ©es includes vegetarian, meat and seafood pastas, each reasonably priced and substantial enough to rate as bargain dining. Best bet? The fettucine with four cheeses, a subtle blend of sharp and mild flavors that play well with a good red wine. Dessert selections are limited to a chocolate torte and panna cotta with cherries soaked in Chianti, a startlingly delicious end to any meal here.
