Rialto, Georgetown's New Italian Restaurant, Introduces Lunch Menu
Chef Fichter's Special Menu Combines Traditional Favorites with Contemporary Dishes

Rialto, Georgetown's new Italian restaurant, will now be serving their deliciously prepared menu items during lunch hour. The restaurant has created and crafted new dishes for the perfect business lunch, private party, or meet up with friends and family, as well as offering the complete dinner menu.

"We plan to make the menu seasonal, and we are able to serve either family style or piattini (small plates) style, to encourage sharing. We find this enhances the dining experience, and while you cozy up to one of our exquisitely hand crafted fireplaces, you can experience fall at its finest," says Rialto's executive chef, Ryan Fichter.

Open daily and serving lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Rialto serves authentic and contemporary Italian dishes, and lunch goers will delight in local, fresh ingredients, including:

� Zuppa di Pesce. A hearty fish and shellfish soup.
� Mandolino. Fresh shrimp salad and ricotta salata sandwich.
� Peppino. Roasted pulled pork with broccoli rabe and provolone sandwich.
� Toto'. Mozzarella di bufala, arugula, fresh tomato and pecorino spread sandwich.
� Pizza Fritta. Fried calzone with ricotta cheese, spinach and ground beef.

"With so many people living and working in the Georgetown area, we hope to become the new lunch destination for those seeking delicious Italian food in a comfortable, unique setting," says Ben Kirane, one of the three owners of Rialto. "For our business lunch diners, we even offer a spacious room with a projector screen option and large tables, making it the perfect choice for meetings and presentations," he says.

Rialto is the third restaurant opened by entrepreneurs Ben Kirane, and Moe and Joe Idrissi. Located in the heart of Georgetown at 2915 M Street NW, Rialto offers world-class Italian food in an upscale atmosphere.
