After cooking all over the world and working with some of the most renowned Chefs, Lisa Nakamura has nestled her newest restaurant, Gnocchi Bar, into the heart of Capitol Hill’s historic Pike Pine Corridor.

“There is something to be said for simplicity and focus in food”, Lisa explains. “Every batch of potatoes is different and there are a lot of variables: the weather, time of year, temperature, who’s making it. You really have to feel it and be in touch with it. It seems like such a simple thing but it’s not. For me, it’s about taking something and trying to present it in its truest form.”

True to her word that’s just what she’s done. Yes, we’re serving a single thing but it’s many faceted. It’s comfortable, we know what we do is good, and we try to make connections to people, she explains.

Gnocchi Bar is a home away from home, where people can come to eat comfortable, delicious, well-sourced, fair priced food. Grab a friend, take a seat, and let us treat you to a wonderful experience.
