Week after week at least one new restaurant opens on 14th Street NW.

Etto, at the southeast corner of 14th and Q Streets, is having its soft opening today. The name of the restaurant means “100 grams” in Italian and the phrase is often used when purchasing food.

Tad Curtz will be bringing us his take on Italian food, with pizza, cold meats and wine.

The space formerly occupied by WellBuilt has been under renovation since 2011. The new space will have a capacity of 85 with outdoor seating. Curtz has done a wonderful job renovating the inside space to recreate a comfortable dinning area. New tiling and wood create a warm atmosphere with plenty of daylight.

Etto will join Ghibellina, Posto, Lupo Verde and the other Italian themed restaurants on the corridor.

Let’s hope it’s as good as Curtz’s current place — he has given us years of great beer and German food at Standard (1801 14th Street).
