Fiola..Fabio's Return to DC

Welcome back Fabio.  DC missed you.
I had the pleasure of dining here for my birthday in 2011.  I usually go somewhere pretty special on the occasion, and this year was not a let-down.

This is the fois gras over buttery brioche.

Literally one of the best things I've ever put in my mouth...not a comment to be taken lightly.
Oysters with a lemon gremolata.

Lamb shank...perfectly done.
Lobster Agnolotti with lobster foam.  Decadent and rich.  Just the way I like it!

Nice way to spend my birthday!
This was the 2nd best dish of the night...the gniochi with fresh black truffles. 
Fiola has evolved since this dinner to include quite the happening bar scene.  They've got some great things going on there.  Should you stop in, please let them know you read about it on Pleasures of the Table.
Thanks for reading.
