THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Tidbit Bistro Restaurant Review

: Tidbit, which moved to a much larger space on Capitol Hill, is a neighborhood bistro with European flair. With a focus on traditional dishes from Napoli and Spain, almost every item on the menu may be shared. The best plan is to order assorted tapas and small plates and then perhaps one entrée. Begin with the arancini, two crispy risotto balls infused with saffron, and add the frittura di mare, lightly fried squid, prawns and salmon served on a bed of arugula. The grilled leg of lamb served as tender pieces atop a fluffy potato cake with mustard aïoli and olive tapenade is so delectable you might not want to share. Pastas are all house-made. For dessert, we suggest the tiramisu or the pastry puffs filled with chocolate mousse. There's a sizable wine list that includes one of the largest grappa selections in town. If you’re not familiar with this potent Italian brandy, try a grappa flight to experience its seductive mystique.
