We went to Cena Bianca to celebrate the longest day of the year, the solstice, under the fading summer light with a white dinner on the piazza at Ristorante i Ricchi. We snapped Martin, Blanck & Associates's Keith Moore with Rosemarie Longo, back, and MetroStage's Jimmie Cook and Dickinson Wright's William Elwood.
Guests were asked to dress in white and bring a white accessory, while the restaurant provided twinkling lights, white décor, live music and a magnificent summer dinner. Here, LEVICK founder Richard Levick, IRS's LaVonne Fischer with attorney Cynthia Butler.
Dinner was grilled Atlantic salmon, shrimp skewers, brick pressed balsamic chicken, pasta salads, cured meats and cheeses. Here, Ford Newman and his wife, New Editions Consulting's Sheila Newman, who, along with chef Christianne Ricchi, recently won a SmartCEO Brava Award that celebrates high-impact female business leaders.
Ristorante i Ricchi was established near Dupont Circle in 1989. Chef Christianne Ricchi lived and ran a trattoria in Florence before moving to DC. Here, she's flanked by Madison House Autism Foundation's Gregory Prince and his wife, JaLynn.
