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).

Etto, a new restaurant that is coming to the corner of 14th and Q streets NW,  is taking over the location of what was formerly WellBuilt, a furniture store. Before that, the spot was home to Candida’s World of Books.

The place has been going through an interior renovation for the last couple of months. Tad Curtz of Standard at 1801 14th Street NW, has been on site supervising and working on details. Etto is one of the many Italian themed restaurants populating 14th Street NW.

Etto will be opening at the end of January; it means “100 grams” in Italian and the phrase is often used when purchasing food.
