One way to beat the winter blahs? Gather up your besties and head to Friendship Heights for a little shopping and ladies-who-lunch (or dine) action. After you've plundered discount spots and swooned through luxe designer outposts, make your way to RANGE, Bryan Voltaggio's latest eatery, to warm up with a hearty meal and some fancy cocktails.
The buzz around this sleek and stylish resto — helmed by the Top Chef star — is intense, and for good reason. With seven different kitchen stations, there's something here to please every palate, from wood-grilled meats and roasted fish to homemade kimchi linguine with uni and bay scallops. But, no matter the head-spinning ordering options, at least the game plan for what to wear is clear: May we suggest a look that blends casual comfort with a dash of uptown class? After all, you're a pretty hot dish, too.
