soon),
we will be
serving lunch and dinner to include small
plates and heartier meals at dinner time. It
is a small and cozy establishment much
like everything in Del Ray. The decor will
skew towards the minimalist and will
combine a rich color palette of warm tans,
browns & blacks. The feel will be one of
modern sophistication. The highlight of the
space is the sleek 30 foot long bar set at an
angle within the long rectangular space.
The space will seat 32 people.
Mark your calendar and make
reservations for Tuesday May 17th at
7pm. La Strada is hosting a wine dinner
featuring a wine maker from Orsolani
Winery in Piedmont. We currently carry
two of their wines my personal favorites
Canavese (red) and “La Rustica” (white)
which was featured by the Washington
Post 9/22/2010 by Dave McIntyre.

Mother’s Day ~ Making Memories
Mother's Day in Italy was celebrated for the first time on May 12, 1957, in the city of Assisi,
thanks to the initiative of Rev. Otello Migliosi, parish priest of the Tordibetto church. This
celebration was so successful that the following year it was adopted throughout Italy, where
since then it is usually celebrated on the second Sunday in May.
