Nora Restaurant, Washington, DC


little bit about Restaurant Nora – In 1979, Restaurant Nora opened its doors in a 19th century red brick corner building in the Dupont Circle neighborhood. This site originally housed a grocery store and an upstairs apartment for the owners, and the current main dining room served as a stable for the horses that delivered the groceries. The restaurant represents the vision of Nora Pouillon, who, with the help of her two partners, Steven and Thomas Damato, has always been a proponent of a sustainable lifestyle and believes that the most important element is organic, seasonal, local food prepared in a flavorful, balanced, healthy way. In 1999, Restaurant Nora became the nation’s first certified organic restaurant, which means that at least 95% of all ingredients must be produced by certified organic farmers, growers, and suppliers. The menu changes daily, offering a la carte items and a four-course chef’s tasting menu. The wine list presents over 100 exceptional wines from small producers, many of them using organically grown grapes and sustainable practices.

Having roots from Central Asia deeply influenced his view on taste of homemade and natural food - he believes great food comes from fresh seasonal ingredients, and meals can be simple and yet extremely tasty. Nowadays, he snacks seven times a day as finishing his baby's food, and closes the day with a full dinner with a glass of Pinot Noir. He thinks food is crucial part in the well being of human life, and also dinner is a good time to form relationship.
