So I went downtown last night on the subway for the first time (and that was definitely an adventure in itself) to go to the American Idol finale. After the show at the Nokia theater, we walked up to BOTTEGA LOUIE www.bottegalouie.com which was two blocks from the metro station. The modern decor is stunning with its high ceilings and open floor plan. The place is always packed with lots of energy, but it's quite large so it can handle a crowd and there is seldom a wait. My husband b-lined it to their incredible bakery and ordered a bunch of delicious macaroons. Other must haves are their pizzas that they bake in a brick oven and lobster hash. Their brunch is out of control good too! You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. One thing I will mention is Bottega Louie doesn't take reservations until 7pm each night and it must be for that same day, so keep that in mind.
