A coastal sister to the original Maialino restaurant opened in New York City’s Gramercy Park Hotel in 2009, Maialino Mare is a Roman-style trattoria with an emphasis on seafood pastas and whole-grilled fish.
Helmed by Executive Chef Rose Noel, Maialino Mare in DC will showcase her passion for cooking distinctly Roman cuisine and the art of using seasonally-focused ingredients.
“For the past decade, Maialino has earned its place as a beloved gathering place for Manhattan’s Gramercy Park. We are thrilled that Rose is returning to her Maialino culinary roots, and we’re confident that she will quickly become a cherished citizen of the DC culinary community.”Danny Meyer, CEO of Union Square Hospitality Group.
Maialino Mare’s menu will rely on its local family of farmers and fishers, highlighting quality, seasonal ingredients throughout the menu, complemented by a robust Italian wine list and beautiful, rustic desserts. USHG will also operate the rooftop bar at the Thompson Hotel.
The Thompson Washington D.C. will be located at the corner of Tingey and Third streets SE, with Maialino Mare accessible from street level, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily.
The restaurant will offer private dining and seasonal outdoor seating.
