I like Montana Avenue, and I really like non-chain restaurants. In that spirit, there's a new Italian place on Montana Avenue that just opened called Cafe Italia.
Even though I've never been to this place (I walked by one recent night and looked in the window), I was just e-mailed their Web site and menu. You can find it here. The menu looks pretty good, and the prices relatively reasonable. But being on a reporter's salary, I can only afford the soup.
UPDATE: It looks like the Cafe Italia people and the McCormick Cafe people are the same people.
