Pesce Restaurant Review

: This simple café on P Street offers a number of first courses and soups, a pasta dish or two, and seafood entrées on its menu, which is written on a blackboard. You get the best and freshest seafood of what's available---sea scallops, grilled salmon, soft-shell crabs, skate wing, and seared tuna. There's seldom a misstep. Pesce's reputation makes it a popular destination for the many foodies who flock here.
